The Way I See It… (Love)

Find all additions to this series by clicking here! Love is something we all have an opinion on in one way or another. The opinion is most always swayed by experiences in love and you’ll always hear a different definition from person to person. Objectively, what is love? To me, it’s an overwhelming mental and … Continue reading The Way I See It… (Love)

Thank F**k That’s Over…

This review of 2018 is more a way of me taking stock of everything than telling all my readers about it. It’s a way of trying to make sense of what has been a pretty chaotic time. Where to start? At the beginning I suppose. The first couple of months of 2018 went like most … Continue reading Thank F**k That’s Over…

The Gift (Flash Fiction)

Lee made sure to keep his steps light as he inched his way through the kitchen towards the illuminated sitting room. The door was ajar, so there was no need to worry about any squeaking hinges. As he rounded the corner, the brightly lit Christmas tree came into view. He looked down to see a … Continue reading The Gift (Flash Fiction)

Five Things I Hate About Christmas

The old saying goes that there’s nothing as certain as death and taxes. In the modern western world, I think we can add Christmas to that list too. Once you hit October it consumes pretty much everything going forward from there. Weeks and weeks of preparation for one day. As a child, I loved Christmas. … Continue reading Five Things I Hate About Christmas

The Scars We Don’t See

Have you ever looked at a person, be it somebody you know or a perfect stranger, and wondered what might be going on inside their head? It’s not something I’ve done often where strangers are concerned, and, when it comes to people I know, I’d rather not make assumptions. It’s really quite annoying when somebody … Continue reading The Scars We Don’t See

Fatherhood–The Toddler and the Thirty-Four-Year-Old Boy

Almost two years ago I composed a rather popular piece on fatherhood. It had to be done. Although I don’t define myself simply as a parent, I do recognise that I’m viewed by most as being one ahead of anything else I might perceive myself to be. That’s fine. It makes perfect sense. Having just … Continue reading Fatherhood–The Toddler and the Thirty-Four-Year-Old Boy

The Last Day Part 1–Haruna

Haruna hadn’t slept. What was the point? He’d sleep enough when he was dead, something he soon would be; something he and the rest of humankind soon would be. Instead of sleeping, he’d taken a cocktail of different drugs and allowed himself to bask in a psychedelic experience. From cocaine to ketamine and a whole … Continue reading The Last Day Part 1–Haruna

A Dalliance with Dalyan

I can’t really lie: I wasn’t massively looking forward to the holiday in Turkey. Alright, maybe that’s not strictly true. I was looking forward to it, just not as much as I’d looked forward to holidays in the past. There were too many question marks hanging over it concerning a multitude of issues. The biggest … Continue reading A Dalliance with Dalyan

Nothing Without Me (Flash Fiction)

Dan sighed. It was about the thirtieth time he’d done so during the twenty minute conversation he’d been having with Melina, his girlfriend. She was going on with herself again. Did she not realise he had better things to do? “You just don’t see it, do you Dan?” “What don’t I see?” “Point proven! You … Continue reading Nothing Without Me (Flash Fiction)

Don’t you dare walk away from me like that!” Niall stopped in his tracks and looked back at Chantelle who was storming up towards him. Neither cared that there were people watching. Right then, they were the only two people around as far as … Continue reading Find me a Find–Chapter Thirty
