Victory

I have many achievements that instill a great sense of victory within me.   I'm a go-getter, I like a challenge.   And honestly, awards and leadership positions should be enough to make me feel victorious.   But, for some reason, my...

Thinking About You.

My brother would've been 10 today...we lost him when he was 7. However, I know he's with me because today, on his birthday, I received three academic awards and became Student Council President. :) Looks like 7 is my lucky number.   I love...

Reopened Wound.

I look inside of me and I am greeted by a wound. A gaping wound that refuses to be healed.   I realize that covering it up won't heal it, but I try anyway.   I place a band-aid on it.   I have had this wound for a while now -...

My Loves

A few years ago, I was facing an unimaginable loss. For a while, I forgot who I was. Losing my young brother, my only sibling, resulted in me losing a huge piece of my heart. I forgot how to laugh - genuinely laugh, and I forgot how to smile -...

Your Eyes

There is nothing more in this world That takes me by surprise, Than looking up shyly from the ground, And being greeted by your eyes.   A lovely mix of green and brown, They twinkle, full of youth. I often have to look away ...

Intoxicated

Your touch. Your smell. Your laugh.   I submerge myself in all of them; in all of you. There is no sign of coming up - it's too late for that.     Further I go; my body is sinking. I'm numb. But beside me, your gaze is like...

The Official Party (Pt.2)

Sometimes, there really is a downside to everything. At the party, there was this boy who used to be my friend. However, I stopped speaking to him after he told me, and I quote, "you can't get guys cuz you're a bitch lol", after i refused to set him...

The Official Party (Pt. 1)

Saturday I drove in, anticipating if my reality would meet my expectations. My whole week was leading up to this moment, mainly because of the floating possibility that something may happen between us. The Dee-Jay was pumping the music and the pool...

The Party.

So, I was invited to a pool party that's being held next Saturday night and I'm really excited. I don't go out much because here in The Bahamas, there aren't many "wholesome" places to go out with friends anymore. Despite this, I feel comfortable at...

The Bet

This bet is going to change everything between us. I'm only now realizing that it has always been you. Maybe the subject of past events have been a distraction from falling for you again. But now, I don't care. Life is too short to hold...

He Who Overcometh

Everything is awesome right now.              There's no drama.                            No silence.                                                               No betrayal.                                                          ...

Stalemate.

Tick. .... Tock. ...   Time is moving forward, but we aren't. Currently, we're playing a guessing game with each other. Just silently waiting for the other to make a move. I want to talk to you again, but I can't find the courage...
