AUTUMN

He is Autumn. He isn’t like the other boys, he’s incredibly different from everyone you’ll ever know. He does this thing where he’ll tuck your hair behind your ear while looking straight into your eyes and I swear it’s like you can almost feel him touching your soul. And his hands feel so warm against…

A CONVERSATION I IMAGINED #5

“Why’d you do it?” She said in a small, timid voice almost as if she was afraid of his response.“I don’t know,” he shrugged, “I don’t know why I do anything anymore,” “Right,” she sneered, “I handed my heart to you and it was torn to pieces and you can’t even give me a stupid…

A CONVERSATION I IMAGINED #4

“Why did you leave her?” She asked as he twirled his finger around her hair.  “What?” He replied,  “You know, your first love. Why did you leave it?”  His fingers slowly stopped twirling around the lose curl and he paused. 
“I don’t know, I just kind of.. Left. You see, we lived in different countries…

A CONVERSATION I IMAGINED #3

“I hate you,” she said venomously.  He laughed. “No you don’t.”  “I do. I think I really do. I don’t mean I hate the way you laugh a bit too loud or hate the way your handwriting changes everyday. I don’t mean I hate how you only wear black or hate how your voice changes…

SOMETIMES, YOU DID TOO

I pretend that it was never good, when people ask why we ended I tell them we were just young and I was blind, that we fought more than we loved and that the entire relationship was an exhausting experience that I’m glad to be out of. But the truth is I’ve never seen another…

BEAUTIFUL TRAGEDY

Sometimes you’ll love someone so much that it doesn’t matter what happens or how they treat you… You’re going to stay and you’re going to be so goddamn in love with them that you’ll convince yourself that their toxicity is healthy for you and you’ll make them the centre of your universe. You’ll swear to…

A NEW STAR

  There are some people who are meant to stay in our hearts, but not in our lives. I don’t know about you, but the 31 days of December felt like a year all by themselves.  It was a long month and a difficult one.   Last December 13, 2016, my family lost an angel…

IRON

Walking in the direction of a new life, a new school, a new path – I came across a gentleman the school quite talked about. He had the nose of a typical filipino, yet in a way, looked quite foreign to my eyes. He had plump luscious pink lips that grows chapped sometimes. His face,…

FIRST

I didn’t understand people’s excitement of seeing a man until the unexpected moment I laid eyes on him for the first time. As he walked in the pathway, I gazed upon the beauty of his. He walks like a runway model on a high fashion event. His face mimics the grace of that of an…

BEAUTY IN DARKNESS

I first met her in a country I lived in yet was exotic to my nationality. Exotic to her own country. She has always been different, in looks, personality, mentality, and religously, compared to everyone around her. The suns delicate light had just turned the world a-flame with gold when I saw her. She had…

PREPRATION OF ESTERS

The Fischer esterification experiment surprised the researcher greatly and filled him/her with joy in a way. The researcher was surprised to find that many different alcohols mixed with different acids can create various aromas that smell familiar and/or beautiful. Before the whole experiment, the researcher was skeptical about the outcomes of the mixtures. The researcher…
