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… Continue reading Sorry, Storm

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… Continue reading Before You

Forever and Infinities

I don't care about forever and infinities. They sound poetic and cheesy, yes. But they are abstracts lacking assuring finite. You don't have to promise me tomorrow. Or a grandiose wedding. Beautiful children. A steady home locked around white picket fence. Those are just social clichés. No need to promise me the moon, the stars, and… Continue reading Forever and Infinities

Seasons: Finale

First two parts were published last Tuesday and yesterday. “This can’t be,” my mind whispered. But my heart and my senses knew, this is him. When I finally looked into his dark brown eyes, words ran out of me. Anger and sadness left me. I am numb. He stared back and looked through my eyes as his… Continue reading Seasons: Finale

Seasons: Part 2

First part was published yesterday. Chilling shivers crawled in my veins when I saw my bloody-self inside my wrecked car. “So what am I now? Am I a soul now? Am I dead? Am I alive?” I shouted but no voice left me. The ambulance arrived. Several medical staffs tried to retrieve my blood-soaked body. The unfolding scene is nauseating but I… Continue reading Seasons: Part 2

Effulgent

The pregnant tree has never dared to let a sunray pass through its leaf-filled twigs, until the witty wind let out a happy sigh that made the stubborn tree dance for a while. As the branches swayed with the wind, the rays has finally reached the tree’s inner soul. It was then it realized how it… Continue reading Effulgent

Redamancy

When your own mother did not desire to love you as her own daughter, it becomes harder to believe that someone can love you forever. Hence when men left me, my heart’s too numb to be bruised. Pain is really something my mind refused. Ever since I was that baby left outside an orphanage door,… Continue reading Redamancy

Nelipot

The burning ball seating proudly at the highest height, burns the stoned alley towards a home without a light. There a nameless man lives with no living thing but himself. Surrounded by less non-breathing things, to him was left. Once he was known as a dashing bachelor, until a deceitful woman snatched his valor. Now he lives… Continue reading Nelipot

Ghost

It has always been my dream to become a writer, a journalist might be the proper term. To see my name in the prestigious by-line of the story that I wrote, would feel like I won a much-coveted Olympic gold. I never knew until college, that Nanay (mother) shares the same dream. I should've figured… Continue reading Ghost

Schiophobia

Faceless, dark, blank, a voiceless yet ceaseless follower, it's always at my back. I can hear its mute footsteps, even it's screaming silence. I want to get rid of him, or maybe it's a her, or whatever it is. It is never my friend, nor my foe but it makes my body shiver, it makes… Continue reading Schiophobia
