You know it's winter when the tap water is as cold as stone,
You know it's winter when you can no longer take a shower without the geyser,
You know it's winter when your hands are numb,
You know it's winter when your feet is cold and dry,
You know it's winter when you don't need the air conditioner anymore,
You know it's winter when the floor of your room cannot be walked upon without socks,
You know it's winter when you shivers run down your spine after having a cold drink,
You know it's winter when you begin to love hot chocolate,
You know it's winter when the cooing of the birds begin to disappear day by day,
You know it's winter when you feel lazy to wake up early morning for school,
Someone's knocking the door,
No wait, someone's banging the door. Is someone trying to break-in into my appartment?
I wondered lying down on my bed.
Somebody please open the door, I am shivering.
I jumped off from the flat position on my bed to a sitting position. I looked around, all I could see was darkness.
My limbs feel loose and my head hurts. I could hear a slight knock on the main door and that scared me. I slowly climbed out of my bed, grabbed my leg pillow and walked cautiously, step by step. As I walked through the passage that was between my living and dining room, I could hear different voices. Voices that I was familiar with, but I ignored them a...
Why do girls fantasize about getting married as soon as they hit puberty? Is it the hormonal changes that induce such desires or is it very normal to think about marriage? Well, it's not like I don't think about getting married or I don't dream of having kids and a happy life. But there's something that stops me from doing so, it's called fear. What if I lose my husband? What if he cheats on me after marriage? What if he abuses me? What if he abandons me and our kids? What if he keeps me confined to the 4 walls of our house? What if doesn't treat me with the respect that ever wife expects from her husband? What if turns out to be a monster? What if he gets me pregnant and then divorces me or ...
Ever since my first day at school, she's always been with me, through thick and thin. Even though after grade 3 we were shuffled to different sections, she still remained my friend. Friends forever forget me never!
We always played together during the recess. If one of us took off from school, the other would do the same. We were little kids when we became friends.
At the age of 13, when we were in grade 8, we found new friends. Eventually a distance had developed and we were no longer friends, forget about forever. We were strangers now. Just strangers. If we ever bumped into one another accidently, we only smiled.
As year past by, things were the same. Strange.
Finally, at y...
The man was worried and maybe nervous too. He constantly walked about the waiting room for about 2 hours now.
Every half an hour, he would go to the nurse's room and ask about some one in the labour room. I do not know who? Maybe his wife was in the labour room. The man looked like he was in his 20s, maybe around 25! He was a very handsome man. But his hair was untidy, totally messed up, his shirt was out and shoe laces were untied. His Reebok shoes looked like they were dunked in wet sand, maybe it was raining the time he arrived at the hospital!
As I was waiting for my name to be called out by the receptionist in the waiting room, I saw two doctors, one with a new born baby wrapped...
Not having someone to share your day with after getting back home from college is the most depressing thing ever. I miss you mom, I wish I could just fast forward the next 5 years.
I miss my siblings, I miss screaming at them, I miss my dad teasing me about everything I did.
Never thought that life would be this difficult and then on the other hand I have mine and my parent's dream hence the compromises.
We which included myself, my aunt, my mom and my grandma were going somewhere when all of a sudden a man was knocking our back seat window so hard that it might crack which left my aunt terrified!
We guessed maybe he was begging for some money or food like any other beggar on the streets, but no, his eyes were on my aunt's iPhone 6s and it wasn't any normal look, it was a very creepy look, like he will just barge into our car and snatch the iPhone! The man was old shabbily dressed in an outfit of that of a postman. We literally freaked out seeing the man's attitude and asked the driver to drive out of the exit as quick as possible. We were just a car behind but it was taking so long for the...
'Through thick and thin, I'll be by your side, don't worry', he promised.
Where are you now when I'm all by myself here?
Why does she pray to be with him?
Why does she care so much for him?
Why does she wait to see a glimpse of him everyday?
Why does she want to know whether he secretly stares at her or not like she does?
Why does she want to see him smile?
Why does she want to know whether she crosses his mind or not?
Why does she cry herself to sleep every night?
Why does she blame herself for falling for him?
Why does she think this is just infatuation and not love?
