sweep

sweeping away the scattered pieces of faded yellow, white, tattered lined paper out on the porch felt like a respite, as if those memories, written in scrawling black and blue within them, could be tossed and abandoned the same way

slight

Just the slightest bit of hope left.

Just that slight bit.

Just a little sprint, and he’ll fill up that slight.

fences

“It’s just a fence.”

“No, it isn’t.” James bounced over and swept a hand over the wooden barricades. “It’s a symbol. For both of us.”

“A symbol?” Sylvia questioned.

“Without this fence, we would never know each other. See this here?” James pointed to where one of the poles was broken off. “If I hadn’t snuck through to grab daisies from your garden, you would have never smacked my head with a toy shovel, and we’d have never progressed this far together.”

accordion

The last one on the mantle. Grandpa’s old accordion. His beloved. He could never part with it.

“What should we do?” I wondered as I stared at it, now coated with dust as it had not been played in years.

“Bury it.” Brother said. “Bury it with grandpa. He loves it, and thus shall it stay with him even in death.”

apron

Worn from years of use, the beige apron was taken out of the old closet with gentle hands, as if afraid that careless handling would cause the article to crumble to dust. It was the only item in the house that still retained the scent of her mum and the homemade meals she used to cook for them.

champagne

“A toast to you, my lovely lady.”

Catherine was still trying to figure out why this man continued hanging out with her. She had retired from the dance floor more than two hours ago, and had strode over to the balcony with a glass of champagne for some fresh air when he came up to her side and started striking up a one-sided conversation.

Catherine kept a tight smile on her lips the whole time, mentally willing this stranger – she still hadn’t gotten his name yet! – to leave and let her be. But it seemed that he wasn’t getting the message.

sinking

Drown. And then can’t breathe. My life. Something that I should continuously think about. But here I am, just floating. Move a little and I sink. So I stay in a place where I know I’m safe. Where I know I won’t drown and where I know I’ll live. So I stay… and don’t progress.

blotches

On my old diary I used to keep in kindergarten, the back pages have a large number of blotches. Black, pink, blue, red, green… people look at them and think I may have been just bored in class; it was true in a way, but it wasn’t so. If they squinted hard enough, they would see the fine lines in each of the circles. They were my thumb prints. My parents bought me many copies of Enid Blyton’s mystery novels, and so I was obsessed with detective work since young, and did many odd things that made me gain less friends than I would have. But I would not trade my love for shallow relationships that may fall apart anytime.

convertible

i think convertibles are easy to drive. i like how they function. i can get anywhere i want driving a convertible. it isn’t that expensive but it isn’t that cheap either. my future girlfriend would want me to drive one because it is pretty efficient. i would blast music while driving my convertible and enjoy the scene as i go.

gentle

Gently as the wind blows
Ever soft and refreshing
Now take my hand
Together in the breeze
Let’s move one step forward
Enter a world of hope

bulb

A light bulb appeared over her head.

“I know! A surprise party!”

“Too old.”

“Celebration at MacDonalds?”

“Too common.”

“Hmm… oh I know I know! How ’bout…”

“Let’s just give her a normal birthday okay?”

evidence

HOW COULD YOU? I’ve loved you with all my heart and soul, how could you have an affair with someone else? This evidence: women’s lipstick in your car that’s not mine, and don’t give me the excuse it’s your mother’s or whatever, your mother’s long gone from this world and your sister is overseas!

chase

chase the turmoils of the sea
and forever you will be
alone in the eye of a storm
