Verse XXXXXI 2011

Verse XXXXXI Hello again, Miss. Glad you could sit down for another tale. You know, I’ve been contemplating on whether I should continue these unhealthy habits. After all, my stories aren’t exactly the most beneficial, but at some point in time, I must have felt their importance. I needed to…

Verse XXXXX 2011

Verse XXXXX I think it’s best if we leave it at that. A simple glance, a faint smile – it’s all that can be achieved from such a soft-edged face. I assure you, my dear friend, that I am content with loneliness and accepting of what imperfections that binds me…

Verse XXXXIX 2011

Verse XXXXIX Hiya Misses; have you come for a second tale? It’s surprising how dull the world seems without the hideous burden of rejection. Perhaps I had reconciled with its heart-wrenching effects, and hence, find this new relief somewhat alien in its essence. Everything’s… so slow, so black-and-white. I want…

Verse XXXXIV – XXXXVIII 2011

Verse XXXXIV Our love… it’s like broken glass Sharp and rugged, shattered and worthless As natural as night to day, we pass by one other Unaware of my presence, unaware of yours Why do you ignore each other so? A tacitly-turned table, rotated remote and away It’s too high –…

VERSE XXXVIII – XXXXIV 2011

Verse XXXVIII Your name will not be remembered. Nor your face, your voice, your actions. You are one of a billion girls, one of a thousand remarkables. Who will take the time or energy, effort or space to remember you? Stalison practically won the Italian campaigns, but he is not…

Verse XXXVI – XXXVII 2011

Verse XXXVI Do not think different when I say that I have been trying – trying my greatest to start anew. The ruination you heaved upon my soul that day was tended to immediately, though no decisive outcome entailed, no significant effect transpired. Perhaps then one may claim the invalidity…

Verses XXX – XXXV 2011

Verses XXX As much as it hurts me, as much as it batters me, I cannot let go. I am forever loyal to you, no matter the pain, grief, or humiliation that is inflicted. Your world is my world; your fight my fight. Every time you tear, I cry –…

Verses XXVI – XXIX 2011

Verse XXVI Life is an adaptive test – unrelenting in its wrath, lacking in its mercy. It will continue to push you to the limit – to the edge of a mental oblivion, of which lies no further guard nor barrier between you and complete lunacy. It is past this…

Verse XX – XXV 2010-2011

Verse XX I find it most discomfiting that it be stated in accepted theory, inscribed in universal law, and etched in grand stone. The greater my love, the greater I would fall. Aghast was my disposition when I realized that I had gone too far. It were of my own…

Verses XVI – XIX 2010

Verse XVI Under pretense, I have passed off my feelings as mere conjurations – birthed by irrelevant desire and molded by unreal passion. Under concealment, I have given you a false account of my life, warped and misstated – told as if the problems were not mine from the start….

Verses XI – XV 2010

Verse XI Two choices presented themselves to her – one of cerebral origin and the other of playful source. Both were equal in their shares, and thus, she found it hard to decide who – who to spend the rest of her life with. The first – esteemed and rational,…

Verse X 2010

Verse X There exists an emotion – a sort of distress that dominates the mind. I feel… uneasy in its presence. The edges of darkness slowly creep onto me; a faint breeze falls from the sky and beckons me to submit to its corruption. It’s a deathly insanity. Every moment…

Verse IX 2010

Verse IX So pertinaciously have you adhered to a false belief. That be your own folly. Upon my vow – a great assurance I scream to the world – we are no longer respectable. There will be no relent, no mercy, no remorse. You are damned in my book; your…

Verse VIII 2010

Verse VIII I had hated you. A scathing anger would rise in my mind whenever your name was whispered. A scarlet flame would enkindle in my heart whenever I saw your face. I find myself disintegrating in my passion; to burn with infinite abhorrence and energy, this fire in my…

Verse VII 2010

Verse VII I recall my scathing dislike towards you. It shames me that I do. I had always thought of you tenderly in my heart, but that time was corrupted. I had hated to love you, simply put. You had killed me, and for your actions, I repay you with…

Verse VI 2010

Verse VI There is a certain sorrow our kind experience — one that never relents, never surrenders, never leaves. Sorrow is always depression at its worst to us, the great killer of minds and social life; yes, sorrow is truly menacing in its own way. And yet, why do we…

Verses I-V 2010

Verse I Too long have I admired in silence. My inactivity was my own folly, for I have lost your heart to another. It is through this tender feeling that I find myself in pain: I assure my humanity, and thus, am I not inclined to hate you for inflicting…
