Cradles Profanities.

This pandemic understandably has been rough for everyone. Being inside was hard, seeing my family sick was rough, and dealing with it alone was backbreaking. The beginning was hard. That’s when in March I took a chance, I downloaded Tinder. I had never had any inclination to download it before but the loneliness compelled me….

Matrix of Emotions.

*To her,* I love you. And I’m pretty sure you’ve known that for a while. It’s not like I’m the most subtle man. Other people figured it out long ago. But I need you to believe that I get it. I couldn’t possibly love you as wildly as I do if I didn’t get it….

Vini Vici

You want to get away from the noise and all the hullabaloos as soon as possible. Such noise and inconsistent chattering drowns out your imagination. You feel the urge and need to be alone with your mind just like the way your body needs oxygen. Your biggest concern is that you have gotten so comfortable…

Heartbreak Hotel Crusade

At times I do not tend to be unintentional, I just do not want it as bad as she does. It was intentional. It is her romantic verneers that betrayed her. We were not there in the first place. You cannot ghost a phantom. Tough life it is, but one has to deal with it….

Friday?

It is a Friday evening and I’m bored by my own company. The coffee in my mug tastes horrible. Maybe it’s due to the fact that it gets mugged every single time. The past two weeks have been a series of events. I have been on medication for a while, perhaps it might be the…

Next Life

Saint John

It is not easy. It’s hard. But every man will experience it. A woman will break your heart. You’ll be alone in the dead of the night, listening to two sad songs on loop. Alternating between grief & anger. Some men will overcome it, some will carry the scar for life. There are three primary…

As Cold as Winter.

She woke up to the sound of her son laughing in his bedroom and her heart sank right through her skin onto the floorboards she had slept on. She didn’t need to wake, the night had come and gone without unconsciousness for even a moment. In seconds she was down the stairs and pulling on…

R for Raphael – Earth.

Previously On: R-for-Raphael/ Before the war, the disagreements, and the fallouts, father was very lonely. Earth was just void and his spirit flowed above the waters. He created us; we celestial beings and we, in turn, watched him transform earth into something magical. It was green and had a vast flora and fauna. But with…
