The first time I saw you in a photo, and had to ask my friend who you were. The first time we introduced ourselves to each other, with a somewhat nervous smile on our face. The first time I talked to my friend about you, and found out she had told you my first impression… Read More “There’s a first time for everything…”
One can never know what to expect from each individual who walks into their life. One can not ever be sure what will become of a relationship before it has begun. One can only have faith that, in the end, everything would be okay if not better. You walked into my life as if you… Read More Unpredictable, Not Unmanageable
They sat in silence as he fidgeted with his fingers. The music played softly as she got lost in the sights of town she had only seen a thousand times by now. “Isn’t it ironic how I’m meeting your brother?” He asked her quietly a question that followed a unsure chuckle. She couldn’t help but… Read More Once Upon a Nightmare
He said, “Just because you’re used to it, doesn’t mean it’s okay…doesn’t mean it hurts any less.” He said, “They just don’t understand you, but I do. I’m here for you. Ignore them. You don’t need them. You’re strong by yourself.” She said, “I’ve never seen someone in such pain. All I wanted to do… Read More “…sticks and stones may break my bones…” but words hurt either way
From a girl who was taught and forced to hide her emotions and true feelings to a girl who is brave enough to force herself to experience the emotions that course through her veins, I survived. From a girl constantly being lectured about how she was “too much like a boy”, “too quiet”, or “not… Read More Life’s Accomplished Stars
When I got my job, my friend – one of the few who saw me go through everything we put each other through – had warned me about running into you. She was wary of the possibility that I might have to have a forced interaction with you. I thought the possibilities were low since… Read More Doors Closed Can Be Opened Again
I know there are a lot of things I worry about that I shouldn’t. I know there is a lot of weight I voluntarily carry that I should probably put down. I know I spread myself thin at times, and that’s my fault. I know this is how I am. But, in all of that,… Read More Always Here
She stands in the corner with her head down, trying to hide the demons that dance in her eyes. Her body is barely trembling with the fear in her mind taking control of her limbs. Her eyes are closed as she tries her best to calm her breathing and slow down her heart rate before… Read More Elevator from the Past
Can I be honest? I’m a first-generation college student coming from a pretty traditional Asian-American household. Instead of pursuing a career in the medical field like my many aunts and uncles, like my parents wish, and my older sister likewise, I am finding a place for myself in engineering and computer science. Let’s just say… Read More This Is Me…as of Today
There was something I had once said, probably four years ago: “If you want to leave, I won’t make you stay. If you don’t want to go, I won’t be able to push you away.” I look back and still want to believe it to be true. Let’s be honest, we’ve all been lied to,… Read More Is It True???
I’m going to quote myself from last year. My post titled I See You reads: I don’t care how many times you screwed up in your past. I don’t care how much you messed up. I don’t care what things you regret but can’t take back. I don’t care as long as you’ve learned from… Read More Please. Please. Please.
Her smile is beautiful. Her little laugh is adorable. Her heart is magnificent. I know that, every day when I wake up, she is either heading to work or to school. I know every day, how much she cares about me and loves me. I know she wants, more than anything, to be there for… Read More Love, Her
It’s always been one thing to have parents against children on topics such as do’s and do not’s, curfew, television time, etc. but it’s another thing when the silent rule is to remain separate. A father who used to work nearly all hours of the day never saw his children as much as he would… Read More A House Divided
She sits in the chair, leaning back against his chest as he wraps his arms around her waist. She smiles as she makes herself comfortable in his arms. The rain outside pours down, the smell of the weather rushing in from the opened doors. She smiles, she feels safe for the first time in a… Read More Singin’ In The Rain
The memories. The photographs. The souvenirs. The dreams. The emotions. The memories. I look back to that year and think, “Wow. Just Wow.” So much happened that year. There were so many things going on at the same time. There was so much hope and happiness yet so much pain and torture. There was so… Read More BitterSweet Memories
