I Should Tell You This Tomorrow

And I know that you said that it would be best if we don't get emotional but I'm feeling awfully depressed and upon assessing myself, I know that there's only one thing that would make me feel better: I want to fall in love. I know that tomorrow, there's a 70-30 chance that we'd watch... Continue Reading →


La Verdad (The Truth)

And so it might be a little too much of a bad omen, but I shall start my year with an emotional purge. I forgot to write about that time last December 22, when I was riding the elevator down your building. I was holding back tears of retribution. My chest felt constricted. I can... Continue Reading →

My Worth

I met the most beautiful boy this year. He's got wise eyes and warm hands and dreams that are almost as big as mine. He's seen the world, tasted its flavours. He's been hopping from city to city to find his ever after. I met him by chance. I met him by default. A chance... Continue Reading →

You Are Not The One

Now, I am certain that I am for someone else. Now I am certain that someone else will do me better than anyone else– than you. For I just smoked a cigarette I've stolen from my father's pack. And it was a cigarette for you –a smoke for all of your sins. I know that we... Continue Reading →

What We’re Going To Do

Let me tell you what we're going to do. I know that we've gotten a lot closer these past few weeks. It was great. But I just can't afford to lose another night overthinking about who we are. You are nice. You're funny. You and I share the same language. I know that you find... Continue Reading →

What You Should Know

What you should know is that I feel like I am falling for you and that it is wrong. I have been here before. I know what it's like to fall in love with boys like you and I don't want to feel that way again. Of all the girls I know, I should be... Continue Reading →

To Rafa (Part II)

Dear Rafa, I am wondering if you're alright. I really am. Our encounter from last year was brief but let me tell you once again how beautiful it was. You're one of the smartest people I've ever met. (Despite the fact that you don't look like it. Forgive me. You're too cute.) In any event,... Continue Reading →

21 And Not A Party Girl

When you're not the party girl, people always assume that you're lying. I may enjoy drinking booze but it doesn't necessarily follow that I enjoy bumping and grinding with other sweaty people who are clueless as to why they are there as well. When I was 14, all I wanted to do is to get... Continue Reading →
