Forgive Me?
Published on 08-30-2017 10:24 PM
I wish he would give me a second chance. A second chance that’s all. A second chance to take back what I have done towards him. To repay and reflect upon my actions. Now all I can think of is if only I never lash out at him. If only I never did those horrible things. If only I had listen to h  Read More...

The Message
Published on 09-12-2017 10:13 PM

The Unspoken Words
Published on 09-12-2017 11:42 PM
It was dark. A silhouette of a girl can be seen in the dimness of the light. She was sitting there, alone, at the edge of the room looking into the dark resembling the image she often saw in so many bad dreams. The same room. The same silence and odour. The same strangeness and unexplained eeriness.  Read More...

Being Twins
Published on 08-29-2017 06:15 PM
"Give it to me," one of the girls cries out. "No, it's mine," the other one says. "You lost yours. This is mine," comes the retort. "No, the one that's lost is yours. Let go of my Princess," her sister screams. I watch from the bottom of the cupboard as they start to pull at the doll. I have a  Read More...

14th February 1989 Mia was all right alone during Valentine's Day. Not like she was single or something. She had a good time being independent and thought about something else.  She leant toward the massive wall while her eyes shut tightly, tried to come up some ideas to help her from falling t  Read More...

 “Come out of your stinking lair, coward!” Sigh. Another has come for him. Bara stroked the horns protruding from his forehead and glanced at the screen of the smart phone on his lap, trying to ignore whoever was outside. He had matters to attend to. His fingers danced on the touc  Read More...

Then I saw another figure beside him as they make their way past the front door. I was taken aback by a beautiful girl standing   Read More...

Playing by The Rules

Standing in the kitchen, my hand shook as I scribbled words onto a piece of paper as fast as I could. My usually neat handwriting was a scrawled mess of alphabets tumbling over each other. My vision blurred from the tears, obscuring my sight altogether. I took a shaky breath as I folded the paper an  Read More...
