Full Moon

Somnolence reverberated through the salience of silence, breaking down the night into its demise, revealing the resplendent roundness of the full moon, glistening through the depths of the night. I stood at the door of my wooden house, seizing the door for support as my energy was slowly draining out of my system. A paroxysm […]

I won’t leave you again!” She was furious, pertinent, about my decision, “Why must you do this?” “I am thinking about sacrifi…” “Don’t […]

One More Moment.

thump. thump. It was my heartbeat, swaying back and forth with the rattan rocking chair, I was knitting the scarf that was half-done, I had not had the time, soul, and heart to pour out my feelings into this embroidery which was decades old. “What if…” I uttered under my breath, “I get to see him […]
