Family [Short Story (2/2)]

I was left in this skepticism and then suddenly I became conscious of the environment surrounding my wife and it seemed more like a hospital and thats when reality struck me and I noticed the worry filled within my wife’s eyes.

The moment she saw me open my eyes, all the worry from her eyes disappears into an inevitable joy. She says my name and embraces me into a hug. I try hugging her back and asking her what happened and why I am in a hospital but even though the words are just on the tip of my tongue, the immense pain that I feel in my head doesn’t let me do anything.

Family [Short Story (1/2)]

I stand at the entrance of this lonely house as the sinister silence haunts my soul. I see my children laughing, playing and running towards me but they disappear the moment I try to come close to them and stop them from falling. My heart starts pounding loudly and my eyes get filled with worry as I search the house, and turn it upside down, but my children are nowhere to be seen. I hear the sound of my wife calling me out from the backyard and I run to look for her, but when I reach the backyard there is not a soul to be seen. “This can’t be happening. First my children and now my wife too?” I think to myself. I can’t do this anymore, I just can’t. I just hate myself for not being there for them when they needed me and now, it’s just too late… they are all gone. Continue reading

Eternal Darkness

The anger and hatred never ended,
the envy grew stronger.
One knew no sorrow,
and the other knew no joy.

The elder one’s life was like the sun,
radiating brightness and warmth to all those around him.
Whereas, the younger one’s life was like the moon,
spreading darkness and creating an aura of loneliness.

But the younger one didn’t realize his importance,
he didn’t know that the elder one always reflected his light.
No matter how hard he tried to shine bright and show the world his beauty
He failed, for the world was blind or so she thought. Continue reading

Just Another Girl

Love is a joke, it is a game
A game I’ve lost over and over again.

I was afraid,
to love you and to ever trust you.
I was afraid,
thinking that you would dissemble me just like the rest.

But, I fell in love with you
thought that our love was sempiternal.

I was a fool,
to think you were the one.
I was a fool,
because you were just like the rest.

All I would do, was sit and brood
wondering what went wrong.

Suicide

Suicide. The word caught your attention, didn’t it? The truth is suicide catches everyone’s attention. It’s the actions leading to suicide that go unnoticed.

Good evening everyone! Hope you’re all having a great day. Today I’m going to be writing about Suicide. Suicide is cowardly, but what’s more cowardly is treating people so badly that they want to end their lives.

Having a rough day? Just place your hand over your heart, can you feel it? That’s called purpose. You are alive for a reason so don’t ever give up. Everything will be OK in the end, if its not OK then its not the end. Continue reading

You Are Not ALONE

His mother’s an alcoholic,

her father’s abusive.

His sister overdosed,

her brother suicided.

His aunt is a criminal,

her uncle is a heavy smoker.

She’s been discriminated on her gender,

he’s been fired because of his race.

Together we are united by our differences,

you are not ALONE.

Before It’s Too Late

Sometimes it’s hard to face the challenges,
but it’s even harder if your lonely.
It hurts to know that no one cares.

Someday, when you’ll actually understand me,
you’ll realize all the times you were wrong I didn’t say a word,
but when I’m wrong, I just become a laughing stock.

The days I tried to fake a smile, to fake a laugh, to fake that I’m strong
were the days that I’ll always remember, because I realized that
No one can see those tears I’ve been holding back,
no one can see the pain I’ve been through.

Maybe not today, nor tomorrow
but someday I know that someone will understand me…
But I just hope that it won’t be too late. Continue reading
