Meant To Be

Night after night after night after night, I still recall every bit of your detail inside my mind like poetry, I am tasked to recite everyday. I recall your smell, the way you talked, the way you laughed, the way I would stare at your skin-- memorising every bit of blemish and pore. I would... Continue Reading →


Friday Night

And I came home from my last class for that day. I did some grocery shopping too. It's been 4 months now since I moved here to Montreal. I have also been living alone for 4 months now and I have to say that it's probably the best decision I've ever made in my life.... Continue Reading →

I know that tomorrow, there's a 70-30 chance that we'd watch... Continue Reading →


Drink 4 More Pills After 12 Hours

To my first child, Hello. First and foremost, I would like to apologise in advance since I know that I can't have you just yet. I bet you'd be beautiful. I know that you are. But this is not when I'll have you. You are not supposed to be the child who was conceived inside... 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...

I light another cigarette. Have I told you that I quit smoking 3 years ago? And yet now, I feel like every time I think of you, I need to finish a good stick or two. I lie down my bed. I see the smoke rise above my head. I can't do this anymore. I... Continue Reading →
