Depth of My Feelings VI

The roman numerals in my head. Ever so shallow. Pinched my eyes and wrecked my lips. The feeling of passion withered away in the distance. I lost the need somehow as temptation took over. The whisper of quiet oceans in my mind kept me going through the ever so narrow skyline. Rugged, flustered, torn grey. A quiet stream screamed so many feelings, deep inside my mind. The silent tears wiped away by soft palms made of steel. An embrace ever so sudden. A kiss on the cheek ever so light. Mysterious ends converging at tender moments. Eyes filled with obscure gentility. 
A broken limb less painful than a fractured heart.
Held as it felt the puncture from all sides. But I deviated from the thoughts of complete remorse and as I tread back a few steps I found the same hold on me, telling me to be alright. Telling me to keep going. Urging me to be fine. A love ever so distant but a head to my chest that made everything alright again. Senses failed and logical deviance increased as I ran. As she stood there, her thoughts still followed me and so did her cute embraces. I felt a feeling I hadn't felt in a while, a feeling I was scared to feel, because if I did, those feelings would consume me till the point I was left with no feelings at all. Only emptiness. A bitter silence that screamed away in melancholy. After a lot of thought though, in frosted hibernation I let all the thorns pass through me and let it all go, and....and.....I killed me.

What Daniel Fernandes's Shadows Is All About

Shadows: A Revelatory Special

I walked into Terna Auditorium on Sunday Night expecting a special set by a comedian I had seen perform live on a previous occasion and had seen videos of on YouTube. Daniel Fernandes went above and beyond that. At the outset he cautions the audience, that his self admittedly social commentary centred style of humour that has gained an instant association with him would not be a feature tonight.
His piece is a reflective one, touching upon self-doubt, his journey of self-discovery, his moment of truth and his foray into comedy. He discusses at length the various paradigms and notions of success that pervade society without sounding preachy. And how while non-conformity can be a lonely place, it isn’t the worst.
Fernandes’ takes on the mantle of a voice in our head and says everything that naturally occurs to us but social conditioning prevents us from expressing vocally.   Through an anecdotal and a canonical sense of humour, he narrates his evolving len…
