it always waits I

it always waits. long enough for me to begin to forget. to have a semblance of certainty in a new reality where things are slightly better. normal, maybe. long enough so my eyes can collapse into dreams bursting at the seams with what seems to be tranquility. long enough to feel as though it was …

Launched 17 January 2017, Pieced By HB is a space dedicated to the expression of the thoughts, emotions and ideas  that are always echoing in the echelons we call minds.



  • “assemble something from individual parts.”
  • “a thing considered as … an element of a larger thing”

When I began this blog in late January,  it was always with the idea that it would evolve and grow – just as I do.

During its first week, I published two essays. There was no poetry. There were no musings. It was just this one thing that I was going to do every other week – until I figured out what would come next.

Over time, all those things have not only become a part of this platform but the person I am today – even though I never really saw it coming.

And in it’s own way, I really enjoy that. I think that it’s part and parcel of our own metamorphosis to challenge the bounds of what we think possible. To piece all these smaller parts of ourselves into something greater.

And in many ways, that’s exactly what I want this platform to represent. Parts pieced together to form something that’s trying to form itself.

Thank you for being here.
