Successful Failure

After years of searching, I finally realized I was completely lost. After years of fighting, I finally laid down my weapon called hope. After years of waiting, I finally ran out of my patience. After years of running, I finally gave up and stopped. After years of involving, I finally didn’t care anymore for anything….

Little Stalker

Stop running and tumbling non-stop after me. I’m scared sometimes, you’d hurt your knee. Don’t stare at me while I’m eating my food. You’re still too young to eat; I feel I’m rude. Hey, you walking leaking faucet, stop peeing everywhere. Cleaning it all up is a big headache, I swear. Get off of my…

The War

“You need some exposure.” That’s what people always told him. Even though he knew deep in his heart that he didn’t need any, he listened to those words patiently. Always told to let his guard down a little. To see the world from another perspective. And mingle with the crowd and form his own wolf pack….

Blind Date

Heartbeat  racing like hell,  Goosebumps all over the body. Feet all soaked inside the shoes. Hands all perspiring, wetting the beautiful rose bouquet, bought for the occasion. Spine all cold. Butterflies rampaging in the stomach. Mouth all dried. Words seemingly exhausted from the vocabulary. Unsteady eyes watching everything closely. Kept glancing at the watch. Mind…

The Conquistador

Dejected and broken, Gazed at the seducing waves of the sea. With each ebb and flow, Into the waters, she wanted to flee. *** One more rejection, Another failed interview. Getting a job wasn’t easy, But that, she already knew. *** All alone and abandoned, Tired and hopeless. No future in sight, She thought she…

Lazarus Pit

“Where am I?” He kept asking this question. Repeatedly and non-stop, he just kept on pounding at the doors of an unidentifiable room. He wasn’t scared. Nor was there any reason to panic. He asked that question out of natural instinct. Slowly, it dawned on him. The room wasn’t completely a mystery. Definitely not as…

Yin and Yang

Dealing with her unstable attitude was a tough task for him. Tougher it    was for her, handling his unpredictable mood swings. Pulling her hair,       he let out his anger. Bite him, she always did in her furious state.        Always apologize, he did with her favorite chocolate. Cooking his…

The Reaper

From the unpredictable dawn to the bloodied sunset, Life was never guaranteed, with the enemy, I had to bet. Missions after missions, drained me of my youth. Long gone, my belief for fighting, as I didn’t know anymore, the truth. Fighting for my country, my home, gave me the strength and purpose. When the horrors…

Savior

One wall down, another one to go, Every bit carefully, he had to take it slow. The number of walls increased with his age, Behind the last one, he locked himself in a cage. Unable to trust and refusing to do so, Years of betrayal left him with no amigo. Others’ concern for him, out of…
