BONDS

Some bonds are just cut out to be No matter how hard Just like rivers They find their course They create their own channels Neither waves nor tides Could ever redirect the intention They could meander Or at worst dry up But as long as there is life There is hope for a new phase

WE DON’T HAVE TO DEPOWER TO EMPOWER

It’s hard being a man in a world where men are not allowed to be human. Women can cry all they want, that’s being emotional but when a man does it is being weak. Why do we have to define the same thing differently basing on the gender? A man beating a woman is violence but when tables turn it is mental health. A woman stealing is poverty but when our Adam does it is robbery. I am not against the girl child, I just wish we could look at …

The next day was tougher than I’d ever thought. This is a day that started with Vanny being off on his phone. I tried to reach him over and over but he was nowhere to be found. The day went on and on, I clung on to the hope that maybe later in the day he’d show up but afternoon set in without a slight trace of him.

Lost touch

That night,unlike any other Was unusually dark Something felt odd about it Strolling down the path towards home They didn’t feel like strides that led home anymore The magnet that pulled so strong any time I neared home was no more I dragged my feet Struggling to get there Anxious about what my instinct was tapping There I was My worst fear came down The touch of home was gone That special spark that pulled me home was gone Down on my knees I fell Why? God why? They say …

(All I wanted was to get home, completely away from that toxic man. I didn’t care if he would come back home, . Any time I tried loving him harder, we ended up more distant. This time I was determined to walk away, I wasn’t gonna let him get home and change my mind like he always did.

DIE FOR LOVE

Right besides her, On that hospital bed, I saw her gasp in pain, Struggling to grab her last strings of breath, She was not gonna survive that. I stood there helpless, Watching my love stare her last. Inside that quarantine cubicle, Was the fire destined to end my love. No,not any more, I wasn’t gonna stand and watch her go alone, Ours were souls destined to sink together. Die for love was my only shot. As my hands trembled, I ripped off my protective gears, And there I was, Inside …

LIGHT INTO MY DARK CORNER Episode 10 “I now have to let you go Theresa lest both of us end up homeless.” Vanny said moving a step back. It couldn’t be what I thought.

He looked into my eyes, like he always did but this time his look had a firm assurance. “Do you mind sitting beside me over here?” Vanny asked as he took to the side of the road and sat down. Without replying I moved and sat at his side. I knew it was time to hear the whole story. “Theresa? …

The first thing I did after waking up was taking my phone to see if I had any text from Vanny, there was none. How was I to go through another day of not knowing how Vanny, he had become a part of my life that mattered. I decided to take a stroll to the riverside, it was the only option I had to keep …

LIGHT INTO MY DARK CORNER Episode 7

LIGHT INTO MY DARK CORNER Episode 7 I saw Vanny’s eyes shine with tears as I said these words. I was afraid I had hurt him without knowing, I never meant to. “If darkness is what it takes to be in your life then I would better learn to survive without light. I am not leaving you Theresa” He pulled me to him for a hug before he turned back to head back to his home. I was only a few yards away from home. The day might have been …
