Budding

I stared blankly at the white wall in my quiet and empty room. It was sparse now that the bed had been packed and sent to our new home. All the shelves on the wall were now gone. The books that usually littered the floor were all tidily organized into separate boxes based on their genres, thanks to my Mom. I sighed. It still felt like a dream. So unreal.

Post-Downpour

I love the smell of the rain

And how the soil turns wet and mushy

From the constant flow of water from above

And how the grass turns a little bit greener

From the pounding of those droplets Continue reading “Post-Downpour”

Ours

It was the smell of the wet soil

And the smallest noise of rain

Falling slowly on our porch

That takes my breath away Continue reading “Ours”

What is it that People are Looking For?

What is it that people are looking for?

In a life that is uncertain

In a world that is a mess

In a time that is unsure

I wonder at times Continue reading “What is it that People are Looking For?”

Not The End

The clock was ticking rather loudly in my opinion. It was starting to grate on my nerves. Why did this particular morning seem so slow compared to the other mornings this week? I looked to my right and left and found people, whom I have known for more than 5 years, hunched over their desk, staring solemnly at the papers scattered on their table. It was only 9.00 a.m in a typical Monday morning. Continue reading “Not The End”

A Mess

My mind is a mess

A cluttered space filled with

Junks of emotions and feelings

Stopping my head from thinking

[SPOILER ALERT] In a Heartbeat Animated Short Film

Well a few days ago I watched this animated short film because I finally found a post in Instagram talking about it. My sister told me about the trailer/teaser since a while ago but I believe that it was only recently that the full version is uploaded in YouTube. The trailer was cute and I instantly fell in love with the Heart, so when I finally found an instagram post with its thumbnail, I decided to check it out. And it was absolutely brilliant!

Things to Do

I sat silently on the hard seat of this moving train that would bring me to my hometown. It was still a long way to go. Five to six more hours to be more exact. I sighed and thought to myself — not for the first time — why did I look for work in a city so far from home. I spent quite a lot of money for tickets and not to mention a lot of time and energy as well. Continue reading “Things to Do”
