The fire cracked, as embers flew everywhere, spreading their soft ambient glow for the briefest of instances. Everything around me was much too dark to see, except for the fire which illuminated nothing but itself. The timber vibrated, as the weeds and leaves twisted under the excruciating heat.

Eden – Short Excerpt


“Do not think. Just play. Feel. You have 10 seconds at most before this building collapses.”

My heart was racing, as I placed my trembling hand on the keyboard once more. Pressing the key, my finger felt light-weighted, my head spun, and my ears flew into realms of seraphic music. For a sound like no other was omitted from the piano. A divine note that the strongest imagination could not foster. It was the note of the heavens.

I walked into the ballroom, dressed in a suit and a look of content, as the music of a beautiful Waltz filled the air.

People all around were dancing in pairs. Perfect synchronization, perfect precision, perfect faces. For their faces weren’t dynamic. They were as stiff as a rock, with eyes wide open, never blinking, and a huge smile on their faces.

Yet I was at peace with the violence of the world, as the earth shook from the storm attacking us all. The few roadside trees around me looked like they will be no more, as they bent sideways under the winds’ punches. But I couldn’t wait till the skies cleared up. There was no time to waste.

30th of December, 2015 – The Race

33 Departing Shadowy figures 18x24

I opened my eyes, waking from my slumber, as a dense mist flailed around me. My head felt quite heavy, as though it were pulling my whole body down into endless space. I couldn’t make sense of my surroundings, or where I was. Thoughts of both dread and curiosity filled my mind, as I heard roars of a cheering crowd in the far distance, travelling through space, and reaching my ear delicately. Continue reading
