The Other Side

Svalla My family recently relocated to a new place. This was after the government decided to show up with huge yellow ugly caterpillars one early morning and decided to bring the old houses down. The house we currently live in is literally big and cosy. The peeps around look bourgeois. Our previous place was lively…

Medicine & Faith

There are two types of sadness. There’s the kind of sadness we ignore and try to get rid of it by finding new things to do, or we find someone to talk to by blatantly avoiding any type of conversation about feeling sad about having any feelings at all. But again, one has to remember…

Windy City

The clock’s thirty minutes shy off from striking 0300 hours. Glass of whiskey on your left hand and a half lit cigarette on your other hand. Standing on the balcony overlooking the parked cars below. It is quiet apart from the occasional stray cat crossing the road. You think of her. You think of each…

Predicaments

Have you ever felt like you putting effort and at times you think that it’s not worth it? And that you’d rather be comfortable and let the ship sink? Do you seem to get tired of all the hullabaloos that keep draining you physically, emotionally, and mentally? At times you’d tend to say, “ah, si…

HSTG

I wanted to be alone. Alone with you, I wonder if it makes sense to you. I have been longing to hijack your soul on its way to purgatory. Perhaps I’d hide it in my treasure chest. When it comes to you, I don’t know what to do with the hickies that you left on…

I have not written anything for a while now. Nope. I have not posted anything for sometime now would be correct. I have several pieces that died in the notepad section of my phone and machine. It is sad at times to think that those sophisticated pieces will never see the light. The characters in…

A Minute,

He walked across many vast lands, most were empty and devoid of life. He knew the down trodden paths like the back of his hand. He always liked the feeling of how the way the earth felt beneath his feet. Each time he came across a river he sat on its banks and he felt…

Irregardless, He Moves.

He was tired – tired of his helplessness. He was tired of the fact that every time he tried, he would end up in the same place he’d started. And each time, a little worse than the former. His life was a constant struggle between hope and despair, never happiness. The city was not motherly….

Substitute Teacher

Hey there. How has your day been? I hope it was as successful the way you wanted it. My name is Kazungu Kahindi, that does not mean much now, given I am new to you. However, Antony entrusted you to my care while he is away chasing dreams and the perfect bus pictures-he’s always had…

Nairobi Relationships.

You met at some bash, probably your friend’s birthday party because without connections in this era you will live to hurt the little guy down there. You exchanged contacts and within two weeks you both feel each other’s vibe. Having late night talks planning on meet ups and all. In a months time you are…
