Like GlassI sipped the coffee quietly, although we both know I dont like the stuff.So. The word dispersed in the air, followed by the trail of silver smoke. I looked up, almost surprised at the realisation that you were watching me.The silent words hung heavily in the room; Im sorry.I blinked and continued tilting the mug into my mouth, savouring the bitterness and letting it numb my tongue.Yeah, I say, pursing my lips. So am I.You turned away, and I secretly marvelled at my ability to stay poker-faced whilst you squirmed at my tone.I know what youre thinking, even as you grabbed your coat and left without another backward glanceMy words cut like glass.
A Chance In TimeId catch you, you know. I blinked and turned to look at him. He returned my gaze with a smile and shrugged lightly, taking my hand into his. It suddenly occurred to me as to what he was referring to, and I found myself flushing hotly. Chuckling, he pulled me closer towards him. You didnt think Id forget did you?I smiled and rested my head on his shoulder. I was just surprised that you remembered, I said, after a while. He traced tiny hearts on my bare arm and raised goose-bumps along my skin.Cassie. His voice was quiet. I think
I think Im falling in love with you. I felt as though my heart had stopped beating. My throat seemed to have closed up, and by the time I decided to look at him, I realized that the silence had lasted for a moment too long. He was no longer looking at me and I suddenly realized that he may never look at me with the same affection he had for me only moments ago. The very t
Those Three WordsHe brushed her off roughly, with the annoyance of an impatient child on a humid summers day. She bites the edge of her lip to stop it from trembling and looks away.Okay
She says quietly, after a moment. Ill see you later. The hope in her voice at the possibility of another meeting almost broke his heart. Not quite, though.Alright, take care. His dismissive tone killed her inside but she simply nodded, afraid that if shed spoke, the tears shed been trapping behind her eyelids would pour out.He didnt see nor heard of her again for the next six months. Her absence had a bigger affect on him than he cared to admit, but the emptiness was pressing and he found himself in the company of countless women, none of whom he could not find solace in.He was always on the lookout for her at the usual places that theyd accidentally bumped into each other: the train station where hed seen her with her boyfriend (the
Here's to HopingI wait for the day when hell turn around, careless grin stilling gracing chapped lips and hand tucked in powder white denim pockets, and say:Lets just be friends.Forty-eight years on, Im still waiting.
Mother's DayThe first light of dawn breaks through the horizon, bruising the sky and gradually streaming through my windows. I crawl into my mothers bed and stare at her sleeping face. Even in her sleep, her eyebrows are furrowed, as if even dreams could not cease her disappointment and satisfy her expectations. I swallowed hard and lean in closer, breathing in last nights lingering memory of cheap wine and cigarettes. Her lips twitched, as if the words were already forming inside her mouth.Happy mothers day, Mum, I whisper softly. Her frown deepened slightly, and she turned her back to me.
My Sister and IDear Katelyn,Its currently 3:42 pm, and all is quiet in prison Block D. From my cell, I can hear Bob whistling from his parole desk at the far end of the corridor.Prison life is not as bad as they make it out to be, Kate. Youll be surprised at the sort of individuals that are currently residing in Block D. I know what youre thinkingso to answer you; no, none of them are precarious mass murderesses. And no, there are no gangs or territory wars being waged under the supervisors noses. To put it simply, life here is very controlled and everything, from toilet breaks to visitation times, are scheduled to the minute.Cell 17 is slightly larger than the other cells, so I suspect I may have to share this space with someone in the near future. At the moment, the furnishings in this room are very simple: there is a single bed, a small table and a small toilet and sink made of stainless steel. Theres one flame-check pillow and mattress with heavy duty vinyl,
Please Let Me WaitPlease Let Me WaitI know you dont feel the same way as I doI know you dont see me more than a confidante, a friend. But I promise Ill be patient; I promise I wont hold onto you too tightly, even if youre my lifeguard and the reason I can breathe easily. I promise Ill always be there, even when you think youre all alone. I promise- so please let me wait for you.I know when you smile at me, your heart doesnt soar the way mine does. I know when you hug me, it isnt a moment of absolute breathless bliss. But I promise I wont complain; I wont tell you how much I miss you when were not together, nor how much it hurts when you look at me without really seeing. I promise Ill ease your fears, even if I have to shut my eyes doing so. I promise- so please let me wait for you.I wont lie..Sometimes I want to let you go. Sometimes I dont want to have to sit by the phone waiting for your call. Sometimes
