fort

Fort makes me think of blankets. I want to make blanket forts with my loved ones. When mentioning loved ones, George comes to mind. I want to make blanket forts with him one day in the future, in our mansion lol.

couple

A couple of days ago, I would never have looked twice at the tall guy with red hair that I always see on the 9:05 train. He looked like a delinquent and acted like it. But, then I saw him play at the Inter High Basketball tournament this morning. Kagami Taiga. I will never forget your name.

difficult

It’s difficult to put into words what I’m feeling right now. I miss my family. I look out towards the faraway sea visible from the 13th floor of our office building and I wish I was anywhere but here. I wish I was with them, laughing, exchanging jokes, singing loudly and talking endlessly. I wish we were back in our old beat up multicab with a makeshift back cover that would protect us from the sun and rain. My parents would then fill it up with pillows and food and my siblings and I would just lie there playing around, identifying possible shapes of the clouds or count the number of shooting stars during our 8-9 hour journey to wherever. I realize those were the happiest I’ve been. And I miss it so much my heart hurts.

chores

The chores she had to do were starting to pile up. But the bed had her firmly in its grasp and it wouldn’t let her go. A storm was brewing outside and all she wanted to do was hug her pillows the whole day. She deserved it after the busy week at work that she’d had.

“Let the chores pile up. I got my Sunday anyway.”

And she drifted off to sleep again.

discovering

I am discovering a lot about myself as I navigate these “adult world”. I left home, heck, even left the country for a job. Sometimes I love it and sometimes I don’t. But I have come to realize, I’m stronger than I thought. And I find when I get lost in translation or the streets of Japan, I almost always manage to find my way back. And it is one big adventure I’m glad I decided not to miss out on.

deserved

I do not think I deserved all that I have right now, especially since I have not appreciated how much they have come to mean to me. I do not deserve them but I’m still thankful that I do have them. My family, my friends, my job, my health, my life…I will always be thankful for them.

metro

She looked up at the towering buildings in the metro. She had come a long way to get here. And she felt happy. This was different. The buildings twinkled in the setting sun. It was a sign. This is going to be a new beginning. She was a country mouse no more.

nobody

Nobody comes to mind when I think of love.
Nobody comes to help when I ask for one.
Nobody laughs with me.
Nobody loves me.
Nobody but me.

cutlery

The maid sighed as she polished the cutlery to diamond-like shine. “What would it be like to have all these riches?”, she thought. To go to balls and parties, spend money like there was no tomorrow. How wonderful that would be.And then she remembered her masters’ problems, from infidelity, and all sorts of debauchery that could only result from the boredom being too rich without working for it. And she thought of her family’s simple life. They were poor, yes, but they were happy. And that was all that mattered.

lofty

The kid’s lofty attitude turned off most of his new-found friends. This was the country, not the city. They were not impressed by his iPad or other gadgets. They were more concerned that he could not keep up with them while running or that he could not catch a fish to save his life. This was going to be a long summer for the rich city kid.

smoking

Smoke billowed from the cigarette in his mouth. I tried not to show how offended I was that he did not even ask if I minded him smoking. All the more reason not to see him again. And here I thought my friend had finally found a proper blind date for me. Note to self: tell friend that guys who smoke turn me off. So I mumbled an incoherent excuse and hurried away from the smoking section of the fancy restaurant he brought me to. Saved! Now what to do with the rest of the night…that in itself is another story.

crosswalk

She was just standing there in the middle of the crosswalk, staring off into space. The light had turned green but she has not moved an inch. Contemplating. Silent. Nothing.

delighted

Her eyes light up in delight as the plane descended towards the runway. She could see the fields, tiny houses, rivers and wide expanse of forests that dotted the countryside. She was where she was meant to be and she was happy.

frazzled

The kids are screaming their heads off in the next room. The cat has just disemboweled a pillow. The sitter called in sick and that she couldn’t come today. The husband is about to come home with his friends for dinner in two hours. I am in the pantry, crying my eyes out. Tired. Frazzled. Weary. I dry my eyes, take a deep breath and open the door.

translucent

I could barely make out the silhouette of the man in the window. But he seemed to be waving his hands in the air. Maybe he’s talking to someone. Or dancing around his room barefoot. Or cheering for his favorite sports team. Damn these translucent windows. I want to be his friend.

illogical

You’re beyond every explanation of logic. You do as you please and I do not understand you. They say women are fickle but that does not even begin to explain your eccentricity. Or the way you always have a song in your head. I have stopped wondering why you do what you do. You’re you and whatever you are makes you special. Illogical but worth it.

disfigured

He stared at me like he’d seen a ghost. I could see the fear and disgust in his eyes but I didn’t mind. I just had to do it. If only to convince myself it was finally over. He never really loved me. He never did. I plunged the knife deeper in his chest and watched as the light left his eyes. At least he’ll never see my disfigured face again.

metro

Metro is a place where you cannot really go.
You’re in it, but you’re getting lost with the heat.
Winter, summer or fall…
You still cannot get through the wall!
Metro can be the hottest place you’ll ever be.

roar

I really don’t know what’s with this word. Is it like, the sound that a dinosaur makes? Like, “rawr”? Lol. Anyway, the instruction said to not think. Just write so that’s what I’m going to do. Or rather, that’s what I’m doing right now. What do you want to prove? Roar? Lol.

library

I sat in the library one afternoon thinking about how much I really wanted coffee. But this was a library, not a coffee shop. See, it seems we’ve been tricked by retailers into thinking that books and coffee inequitably go together–most bookstores nowadays have a fancy coffee installment in. But not libraries. They’ve got the right idea, them libraries. Still, I need me some coffee.

sneeze

I’m sick and in bed, my toes feel numb but somehow I can imagine the world outside and it seems brighter. Brighter while I’m here and unable to move, sneezing and coughing my stomach churns and I feel my head pounding. It’s nice to know the world is still there.

shallow

..as the puddles along the sideways after a light shower.. but is it not relative? perspective makes a lot of difference..

startled

i was startled to know that my ex is still interested in talking to me after everything that i had done to him. i was startled that my mother would accept me again after going against her wishes. i’m startled about everything that has been going on in my life. startled to the point that i don’t know what to think of it. really.

mist

It’s not the mist that you see first when you wake up in this place. It’s the trees. They’re everywereh. All around your house. In your garden. It’s like these people adore them so much. I don’t know. I’ve just moved here. I’m not sure if I like this tree0-covered land. I’m still

yoga

Yoga.. rhymes with Yoda.. which then rhymes with.. SODA!
Anyway.. a few years back there was this news paper article about this woman that was recommended yoga by her physician to relieve office stress. The woman tried it out and it was working, but after a month or so she actually damaged her cervix during a stretch routine- goes to show you too much of a good thing is just bad.

pills

He stumbled as he groped his way through the darkness of the alleyway.
It hurts. It hurts it hurts ithurtsihurtsITHURTS.
He fell. tripped. Blood trickled down his side as he fumbled for the plastic bottle in his pocket, shaking, shuddering, he opened the cap only to fall upon the ground, before a shower of a hundred tiny blue tablets fell on top of him.

export

China exports cheap types to America- Obama doesn’t like. Come to think of it, China pretty much exports everything you could possibly thing of cheap- thank you sweatshops and child labour..okay, maybe not so much child labour as to the fact that living standards are just waaaaaay too low compared to the west and I think I’m out of time..ah, oh well.
