    Children of the République – 01 – De l’autre côté du miroir

    Posted on by

    J’ai rampé. Epuisé. Lessivé. J’ai rampé jusqu’à mon lit en espérant trouver dans les bras de mon compagnon, une chaleur réconfortante. Je me suis glissé sous les couvertures et me suis lové contre son corps. Il était cinq heures du matin et je venais d’assister à la défaite du bon sens : Un fasciste à la… Read more »

    Children of the République – 01- If you don’t see them, they don’t see you

    I crawled. Exhausted. Devastated. Back to bed… It was five in the morning and I snuggled against my partner, hoping his warmth would ease the pain. I had just watched something I couldn’t fathom: the orange muppet I had been rolling my eyes at for the most part of a year had just been elected… Read more »

    42 – October 2013

    Posted on by

    Snoozing was just not going to cut it anymore, I would have to open my eyes and face the harsh reality of another day. As I was lying there, unwilling, I saw my entire day flashing before my eyes. I knew what every single minute of the day was going to be like. I would… Read more »

    The Gospel of Jerome – Realization 1:3

    Posted on by

    Boredom is rotting me to my very core. Boredom has slowly crept up on me or if not boredom itself: the realisation of its overbearing presence. And though, one might argue that it is good, at times, to be a little bit bored, I fear that boredom has somehow swallowed me whole. Sundays, dreadful Sundays…. Read more »

    The Gospel of Jerome – Realization 1:2

    Posted on by

    ‘There are two kinds of people in the world’ is a phrase I’ve been hearing a lot lately, a phrase thrown every which way to express one’s perspective on the world and which is often misused if not misguided. But there are, indeed, two types of people in the world: those who have had children… Read more »

    The Gospel of Jerome – Realization 1:1

    Posted on by

    When we look at someone we jump at a particular set of conclusions and I, narrow-minded pretentious know-it-all, do very much the same as everyone else: I judge people. I judge people on appearances, on the clothes on their back and on their grooming habits. When I see a muscular man whose tight-fitting tank top… Read more »

    Happy Ending 3:3 – The Wedding – September 2013

    Posted on by

    I would have never believed that when I welcomed 2013 in the misty miserableness of gloom galore, I would be standing where I am right now. My hands are sweating, I can barely breathe. I keep looking at my mum; she is tearing up and is trying her best to compose herself. She is the… Read more »

    Happy Ending 2:3 – The Ball – August 2013

    Posted on by

    His lips lingered, tantalizing. We were but one; intrinsically linked by the softness of our flesh pressed against each other. His lips embraced mine and my lips welcoming his in a surge of passion. We couldn’t stop, severing the connecting was unthinkable. It seems as though it was a lifeline, a thread bringing us home,… Read more »

    Happy Ending 1:3 – The Return Of Prince Charming – July 2013

    Posted on by

    There are moments in one’s life where the world is turned on its head, when everything you’ve ever believed in is shattered into a million pieces, when who you thought you were is somehow unravelled and what comes out of your mouth is as surprising to you as it is to everyone else. There are… Read more »

    Manners Quest – June 2013

    Posted on by

    As the train entered the station, I got up, knowing fully what was to happen next. But this time I wasn’t having any of it. This time I was ready, ready to stand up for what was right, ready to fight for peace and order, for decency, for queen and country; ready – I tell… Read more »

    Fucking Manners – May 2013

    Posted on by

    Somehow you can be living in the same country for years and not see what is staring you in the face but the moment, the second it hits you, that is all you can see; it’s everywhere you look… It happened on a train platform, the same old, boring train platform that carries millions of… Read more »
