THE other day, I went clubbing with my friends. The club was wild as there was an event for someone’s birthday. I was enjoying the music at the bar because I would not dance as it is not my thing.

Into the Looking Glass

Outside, the ocean spitted waves, furling against weathering rocks- ones she remembered being those deep shades of black with earthy mottles adorning. Between the ashy welkin and saltwater blue, Liv had made h  Read More...

Rock Bottom

Outside, it is pouring. This time, I am neither preoccupied with work nor had it tire me out. Given the fact that I am wide awake with all the leisure time in the world, this is the kind of weather that I despise. It is during this lonely yet melancholic weather that long kept dusty memories fr  Read More...

The smell of black bitter coffee and slightly burnt toast brings me to a state of joy, yet in seconds after clicking the TV, the news bombards me with a 43 years old woman who abused a 13 years old boy to death.

Broken Hate. Such a strong word. But I feel like it’s the prefect word to describe my life. It is not a word that is used to describe things but I’ve heard it so many times that I have become so familiar with it.
