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.

Teacher

Great teachers empathize with kids, respect them and believe that each one has something special that can be built upon” – Ann Lieberman

Good afternoon everyone! Hope you are all having a great day. Today I’m going to write about someone. A teacher in my school who left the school because she had to shift back her native country today.

There are people who cross our lives in tiny fractions of time, in the briefest of encounters and yet they leave an inedible mark in our hearts and minds. This teacher is one of those people. I had heard a lot about her from my friends and when I did meet her once for some time she left a great impact on my life. She teaches English and the way she talks to the students keeps us captivated just wanting for more because she treats us with so much respect and always has a smile on her face. Her words elevate and inspire me to be a better person. Continue reading
