A Purpose
Published on 08-31-2017 12:45 AM
More often than not, I find myself thinking of my purpose in life. Till this day, I have yet to find an answer. Many times, when I am alone in the darkest hours of the night, gentle winds will whistle right past me, as if to whisper sweet nothings into my ears. For years now, I have come to seek for  Read More...

The Chaotic Disorder of Life
Published on 08-27-2017 10:48 PM
I stood on the steep and narrow cliff in the dead of night. Gazing at the full moon in its glistening brightness as I gasped for air. I blinked once, then twice. I winked once on my right eye, then on my left eye. I sobbed and sobbed while the thoughts of madness drove me further away from sanity, l  Read More...

Dalia woke up that morning a little discomfited by the numbness she felt in her head. As she strained to sit up on her bed holding her head in both her hands, she groaned when she felt sudden sharp jabs running through the nerve ends and which appeared as though they were relentlessly picking at he  Read More...

It's not my choice
Published on 09-12-2017 10:39 PM
“Jack, wake up. I want to see your eyes”, the familiar voice whispers. My eyelids pry open slowly, revealing to the world my ocean blues. The grey dull ceiling catches my stare as the beeping noises from the hospital machines beat in my eardrums. I feel my chest rising and falling with e  Read More...

He hopped his way to where she was standing under the mild shade of half withered tree waiting for her 10:30am bus. "What's special today", he asked to which she responded with raised brows and a headshake. He continued, "They say today is special". And she went, "Oh! today is Valentines Day. It's t  Read More...

Sometimes, it is compulsory to kill your curiosity, and let me tell you why. So I am now, sitting here, in this weird little box, waiting for someone, anyone, in order to get out of this. There he comes, a guy with purple shirt, talking to Mr. Claude. I was new to this town, when I first got here w  Read More...

Whipped Away
Published on 09-04-2017 01:34 PM
Water splashed up everywhere as four pairs of feet hit the sea almost simultaneously. A breeze stirred the leaves on the trees, and whipped the girls' hair softly. The water was shockingly clear and the sun was shining brightly in the sky, resulting in a perfect beach day. The four of them: Jade, L  Read More...

"You are my sunshine,  My only sunshine,  You make me happy,  When skies are grey..."  It was indeed a grey day that day. Oh, the sun was out and the birds are chirping and people are bustling about minding their own business.  I meant, my life was grey.  I'm colour-bli  Read More...

Living In with My Best Friend
Published on 09-13-2017 11:43 PM
I stare down at the floor; red blood drops on bright white tiles, making a trail from the bedroom to the living room. She must have walked from bedroom to call her husband sitting in the living room. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________  Read More...

I remember 8th Grade, the first time we met, when I stared at you with the sunlight glowing behind you like a halo, and I stared and stared on like an idiot until you spun around to me, a secret smile on your lips, mouthing the words, like what you see? I remember staring like an idiot still, while   Read More...

I was born into this world to be a leader and to be a champion. Being born into this world is the greatest challenge that I had accomplished. Loving parents and family will never distrupt the way I want to live in this world. I loved the toys and the importance given to me from the day I was born. I  Read More...

The Reality of Conjecture
Published on 09-12-2017 12:46 PM
The man had been sitting at the lounge area for a long time. Greying hair, a sharp, aquiline nose set in between a pair of cerulean blue eyes. His strong jawlines and prominent cheek bones could be clearly seen on his pale, angular face. He would have been quite handsome for his age, which looked to  Read More...

Faster and faster Victor ran, but in the vacuum of darkness there seemed to be no end. Victor Lee began to panic. In the black nothingness, there was no direction, no guidance. For what felt like forever, he was groping in the darkness, not knowing where he was. He was even beginning to doubt who he  Read More...
