Odd Choice

The yellow car was welcomed by the flock of frowning, peeking humans waiting inside the old church. This occasion is usually painted in pure white, a contrast to the auto parked in front of the door that’s just very bright. But the bride seated inside is as jolly as the color of the sun, soContinue reading “Odd Choice”

Tattooed and Tattered

Morning View

Awakened by the loud jeers, cheers of the playing boys outside, I slowly went out of bed. He’s standing just outside our bedroom door staring, waiting for me. He offered his hands with a weak smile. I smiled back and took his hand to his surprise. Outside, I gripped his hands tighter as my eyesContinue reading “Morning View”

Cling

I’ll cling to you until my fragile hands bleed against your rugged, rough edges. I’ll cling until my candle-like fingers turned cold in the absence of my warm flowing blood. I’ll cling until my pink nails turned dark purple and almost dead-gray. I’ll cling… I’ll cling to you. Even when you can’t cling to me too. —Continue reading “Cling”

Cave Woman

Cave woman. That taunting nickname was born when I was a teenager because of my bar-hate. The tag and my bar inexperience have remained until now that I’m almost at my four-decade mark. I hate the smell of beers and alcohols, most of all, smoke. I can’t stand noise equally. Beyond these, I’ve heard and watchedContinue reading “Cave Woman”
