    In the time it took for me to call my lawyer and file for divorce, he had made the split decision to end whatever time he had left – the next I saw of him was face down, on the pavement, the brains splattered.

  • PeeVee commented on the post, earrings 5 years, 4 months ago

    Her pearl drop earrings mesmerized him – the perfect curve of her cheek with the pure, pristine white jewellery seemed to have hypnotic capabilities that he wasn’t aware of. He had never paid attention to women before – just a cursory glance, one that was demanded by Nature and his birthright as a full-blooded male. But this one had caught his…[Read more]

  • PeeVee commented on the post, illogical 5 years, 4 months ago

    Is it too illogical to say that you have to do half the work? It feels like I’m asking too much. You MAKE me feel like I’m asking too much. And that is not fair. I’m a feminist and I don’t believe in the roles which have been set by society – you knew that. And yet, you ask me to do everything. Everything.

  • PeeVee commented on the post, biblical 5 years, 9 months ago

    The rains lashed on the roof of my house with biblical fury as I tried hard to keep the only lamp that I had from going out. It was like the heavens were beating down upon me as punishment for all my sins.

  • PeeVee commented on the post, harm 5 years, 10 months ago

    All I could think of in that moment is that he was in harm’s way and that I had to get him out of there. I sprinted towards him and whisked him away with an arm, one quick movement in one life stopping moment and he was out of the tram’s track.

  • PeeVee commented on the post, counted 5 years, 10 months ago

    I washed the clothes. I did the dishes. And I picked up the groceries.
    Then I sat down and counted the cards in the stack, all wishing us a very happy married life.
    The shine had faded from the stars and our eyes but the cards seemed to not notice.

    He wiped his tear-streaked face, leaving smudges of dirt across it. Slowly getting back on his feet, he walked away from the torn Care Bear that had been his constant companion all through his short life. He consoled himself with the toy train, trooper that he was.

  • PeeVee commented on the post, mechanism 5 years, 11 months ago

    I don’t understand the corporate mechanism – they tell you we matter but ultimately the business comes first. Always comes first. Which is funny considering the ‘business’ is made up of single, individual units like us, building each painstaking block at a time.

  • PeeVee commented on the post, typhoon 5 years, 11 months ago

    The typhoon of emotions swept over her senses, leaving her wrecked as her eyes brimmed over with unabated tears. It wasn’t the desertion that broke her; it was the cold, hard look in the eyes of the man she had loved and loved her back for two decades and the indifference that she saw in them that really drove the knife in – where there was no…[Read more]

  • PeeVee commented on the post, unthinkable 5 years, 11 months ago

    What he did to me was unthinkable. More than what he did to me, the damage he caused to my mother’s health and her relationship with me is what boils my blood. There was a point in my life when I couldn’t think of a life without him but now, I wish we’d never met.

  • PeeVee commented on the post, derive 5 years, 11 months ago

    I told him I have to go. What he chooses to derive from it is his problem. But then, it isn’t like I want to be rude or push him away for that matter. It is just…. that I need my space and he is crowding me, pushing me to make a decision when all I need is some time to think about everything and get my head around the fact that I might be in…[Read more]
