    The tiny buddha replica she bought at Thailand a couple years ago also went missing along with everyone else’s belongings. Her buddha–which she used as a paperweight–was the 38th thing that was stolen on the series of thefts happening on her workplace. She wasn’t really concerned on her lost buddha but the serial thief lurking around her office.

    He thought he’d impress her by making her a playlist of songs he handpicked himself, sort of like a mixtape, but nobody makes those anymore, and she probably doesn’t even have a cassette player at home either. So he hijacked her ipod that she only uses everytime she goes jogging and put the songs in there instead.

    I had never seen a face which turned violet that much that it left me in shock and disbelief, someone from the restaurant rushed at the commotion and did a Heimlich maneuver on the poor man.

    It was a loud thud. Even though I was in the other room, the sound of her falling down the stairs sounded like the rumbling of thunder on a stormy day. Everyone rushed to her to see if she was ok, she sat up and responded to their worries with a smile and a deep cut on her forehead.

  • She could see what he was trying to do, but she still couldn’t fully grasp the intent behind his actions. You could say that her hunches were still in its peripheral stages.

  • nom de luc commented on the post, believe 2 years, 11 months ago

    Everyday. Every damn day. I had to convince myself over and over and over that I’m cut out for this. That I can be a better version of myself now than I was five minutes ago. Sure, talent takes you far, there’s no questioning that. But I’m a firm believer that hard work takes you somewhere too, albeit rather slowly, but at least somewhere. This is…[Read more]

    “Take five.”

    “…and, ACTION!”

    She felt his hands again, this time she convinces herself that she would finally get this scene right. She closed her eyes, felt her co-actor hands when he angled her chin, felt his breathing, and proceeded to kiss her–uninvited. She could feel his tongue trying to engulf hers. A forceful dance of fancies.…[Read more]

    She had eyes of ember; a pair of red burning rubies that saw the world burn as she knew it. She’s got nothing left. No one to go to. Not even herself knew–who she was, where she’s at, and what the flames felt like when it touched her skin that one night in February.

    Weakling, (sigh). To be honest, it is painfully burdensome to write of a word which describes you the best.

    Dust wafting gently–slowly, it forms a mist-like view at your room. A year later and your still nowhere to be found. August, constantly withers along the faint sound of your name, each day passing, every minute […]

    Mostly it’s just air. Light, colourless, sweet. Smooth like your skin — tastes like it too.

  • Constant reminders — often ignored. Complying to ‘terms of agreement’ is a lie we blindly convince ourselves that we do. Yes, you ‘agree’ to those so-called terms but who reads them anyway? If it breaks, there […]

    “The usual suspects as always.” sneeringly mocked the man who was robbed. Traces of lead, rust, a pint of blood and the smell of sweat surrounded the usually-emptied stockroom, but now cramped of who-could-be’s, […]

    If ever they made a movie of how I lived my life, the trailer would be the movie itself: incomplete and misleading.

    “I’m sorry. But I Think you’ve mistaken me for something I would never be.” I didn’t understand what it meant at first when he told me those lines when we last had that conversation until I realized he dropped out from school to follow his artistic endeavors. He’s too abstract for architecture, too complicated for […]

  • nom de luc commented on the post, coward 8 years ago

    Look at you.

    You look pale, thin, and drained of life. Aren’t you scared of what you’ve become? Obscure, Devoid of wit and interest. Aren’t you the one who hides underneath—a cowardly notion—your dead lover’s skirt every time she asked more of you?

    Alarmed by the stale stench in the air, she gets up—only in her dreams—to touch herself for the first time since that last one. It is also the last time she would realize that what he says no longer touches her senses anymore.

    You’re going the other way. Why? This is the city we live in; transient, subtle, filled of normalcy except us. Stop pretending you don’t like me, because I almost told you that night that I do like you. Your home is a daily route I always pass to.

    “I’ve got nothing but this coin way back from 1988.” Maybe it’s worth a fortune by now if I were to pawn it. Maybe it’s worth nothing at all. But whatever is left of my sanity from reaching my fingertips inside this pouch, I don’t care anymore. No self-respect, no honesty, nothing. Because this pouch […]
