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.

The air in the house was gloomy as every tenants of the house were all present upon a single old stature, as if she was giving her last word before she entered her eternal sleep.

The Shed
Published on 09-10-2017 07:32 PM

Mangled.  That was the only word for it.  Aina couldn't understand how it happened. One moment she had been on the bed reading, and the next she was standing next to the highway, looking at a crashed car that was mangled beyond belief. The front was crumpled in, the sides looked like the  Read More...
