Broken

Broken

The clouds are like dark marble on black satin, blocking the king of heat from reaching the sky. Silence caresses the room like a cool summer breeze. The church clock languidly ticks as we find comfort in dark assortment of clothes in the full splendor of sorrow. My factitious face of despair maps many old [...]

Forbidden

Forbidden

I'll be lying if I said this was an easy topic to air out. I have had encounters with people who've had different perspectives on sexuality. And the beauty of being surrounded with such diversity is that you learn to be open minded to life. In a party, I meet two well groomed gentlemen smelling [...]

Unfinished art

Unfinished art

Five years ago, we had a vision of a beach themed home in a warm gated community in the comfort of other families. We took strolls around, or my husband did as I collected different interior designs that would compliment both of our styles. Minimalism is his go-to and I love simplicity; warm white walls [...]

Imperfection

It always bothers me when one airs out another's flaws disgustingly. It gets me thinking, are you god? If not, you damn well have made mistakes as much as the next guy. Don't get me wrong: there is correcting as a friend or a genuine person and there is poking into other people's businesses so [...]

Chased by fate

Chased by fate

From the truths, gossips, assumptions and guesses about you, have you ever wondered how many story versions of your life are out there? You are like a book written in different covers, fonts and languages. They believe to know who you are supposed to be; what you can and can't do. Even when you defend [...]

The Power of Giving

The Power of Giving

I recall year 2014 when I finished The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, a few words stuck in my head. “…I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout [...]
