I’ve been so busy this week that my mind is complete mush. No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t think of a topic for this week’s blog. So instead of the usual literary drivel, I have decided to complete and share a recent piece that I have been working on entitled “So Cliché“.

A thin line between love and hate.
So thin that it is virtually invisible;
Causing us to inadvertently cross over it again and again?

Pleasure and pain; two sides of the same coin.
Is the outcome truly as fickle as the flip of a coin;
The pursuit of pleasure oft times causing pain?

What you see is what you get.
But have we not been taught that we should never judge a book by its cover?
Is what I see truly what I get or merely a projection of what I wish to see?

Actions speak louder than words.
Show me, show me, you really love me.
But every so often, don’t forget to speak the words I long to hear.

Beauty is only skin deep.
Rather than focusing on the vain and waning superficial,
Let the beauty deep within your soul resonate and shine through to the world.

The eyes are the window to the soul.
The deeper the soul, the deeper I want to dive in,
Submerging myself in the essence that is you.

Seeing is believing.
Is not the very definition of faith, to have absolute belief in something you cannot see?
Beware of believing everything you see or you might get lost in the illusion.
