Right and New

Your mom let me in with a warm smile painted on her lips. “You know the drill, my little man,” she said tapping my back as I come in. I smiled back and nod. As usual, you are late. For almost two decades I have been waiting for you almost every day. Our parents are […]

Monday Morning Melts #7

Rosema: After being MIA for the past week, I am back with dear Jade for Monday Morning Melts! 🙂 After the Christmas festivities, let me treat you with yet again another sweet sweet song. 🙂 I have written a fiction titled “Quite Like You” based on this song. When you read its lyrics, and when […]

Gift of Vow

We are like north and south, light and dark, sweet and sour, moon and sun. Until our opposite worlds were united by love, a relationship was made, inside God’s hands. A journey with rough patches, taught us acceptance and forgiveness. Through His words we’re blessed to be here. After fervent prayers, our life together is […]

Monday Morning Melts #6

Jade: Do you feel it? The beautiful lights, the easy smiles, and the hint of magic in the air that always makes the holiday season one to remember. Instead of choosing from one of the classic Christmas songs, I’m offering lyrics this week from a song that’s a little quirkier. To everyone still scrambling for […]

Solitary Suicide

Foolish. Naïve. Crazy. My friends have been engraving those words in my mind for months now since I told them about you. They asked, “How can you love someone you haven’t seen.” I smiled and answered, “How can I not?” They said loving you is like walking slowly towards a deadly cliff. Once I fall, […]

Monday Morning Melts #5

Rosema: Most of the time, love is expressed and felt through physical intimacy. Touch. Kisses. Hugs. But how about loving someone from afar? How about loving someone you haven’t seen yet? How about falling for someone’s soul residing in a body thousand miles away from you? Will it be a gamble worth committing? Will it […]

Sorry, Storm

My clear window pane is tainted with gem-like trickles of rain. The sky is angry. So black. So dark. Its sharp and fast lightning brings along growling screams of thunder.These are the moments I hate the most. With rain comes my demon named depression. The feeling that even the mighty one loathes my existence and He […]

Monday Morning Melts #4

Jade: Nobody melts my love-loving heart quite like the Backstreet Boys. I suppose growing up in the era of 90s boy bands, that was inevitable. This week, I’d like to share with you all a classic, in the hopes that the sweet vocals and sweeter lyrics of my favorite boy band will melt your heart […]

Before You

One is a whole number. I can exist on my own. I can cook for myself. I can breathe for myself. I can speak for myself. I can take care of myself. It’s not as if I was born with someone to do those things for me. I was born alone. I have no problem dying […]

Monday Morning Melts #3

Rosema: As you probably know, I love Jason Mraz. Well, love is an understatement. I Won’t Give Up and Lucky are among his biggest ‘sweet’ hits. But to introduce you to a rather unknown but equally heart tickling song, here’s “In Your Hands”. The part I picked are for me the sweetest lines that has […]
