I Will Always Hold You In My Heart

By Barbara MacDonald , published on May 28, 2014

Trying...

To teach myself to think of you

Without so much emotion

Without longing to look

Into your sweet eyes

Which showed me your soul

A soul connected to my own...

When will the pain stop?

How do I let it be at peace?

I told you long ago

I did not want to live in a world

Without you

Now you are gone

My souls still cries for you...

I am here

You are there

In a better place

So they say

I am selfish

I want you here with me

My heart not able

To let... (more)

...herself to it.” - Anaïs Nin

The one I hates the MOST

By Rahul, published on Dec 13, 2012

...all in it is against me. My father got transferred to Coimbatore; it was his third transfer since I started my school day. I was enrolled in a new school there, my fourth school. New school, lot of new faces and the only thing familiar as usual was the books. There I met him, he became my best friend and now I hate him the most. He came to me, stood beside me, talked to me a lot and it seemed that we both had the same view towards life. I started talking a lot too, about me, about the world around me and how it’s unfair. I trusted him, he listened to all of it silently but little did I... (more)

Final LIGHT

By Rahul, published on Dec 6, 2012

I have friends, a lot in fact, they were always nice to me, loved me and stood near me when ever needed, but I felt all alone and detached. A little did I know that I created a barrier between me and others, the one through which not even my parents could pass, the one which made me fall in love with loneliness. It felt like dark and cold inside, as if I am not needed in this world, as if I am dead. Four walls surrounded me, I can’t see beyond them, only darkness all around, they are closing in fast now; soon I won’t be able to move and there won’t be much air left for me to breath. All trapped... (more)

Grief...

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Oct 25, 2012

Time slips away

I know I can not rewind this gift

I cry out to this senseless universe

Longing to hold in my hands

One last moment when life

Was as I knew it

You were here with me...

We never know what time

Will steal from us

We must treasure every second

Speak all the unspoken emotions

Left behind unsaid

Unlittered by this cancerous evil...

If I had known

I'd drench us in joy

Hold every second in

The palm of my hand

Played in all the colors

Drowning us in joy

A friend

By Cielo, published on Feb 3, 2012

...pessimistic thoughts like you would shoo some pest birds off your precious garden. But how? How can one accomplish such a thing? Shutting off negative thoughts it surely is a hard thing to do. At least for me it is.

It was then when all of a sudden the thought of a dear friend burst in my mind… like sparkles of magic. The thought of him instantly changed my mood. Although I didn’t realize it then, I already had a smile in my face.

I decided I should go to the garden and wait for my friend there; but I was a little hesitant. You see, I hadn’t seen my... (more)

Uneducated Blogging & The Unrelated Enemy

By Maylin Gonzalez, published on Oct 8, 2011

...they know and feel that whatever that other person does, will always be better than what they can ever acquire in their own life. Therefore, they essentially and noticeably, partake in destroying an innocent person’s life by inflicting fault. The very same faults the threatened individual has committed.

We have all heard the phrase ‘The best way to destroy an enemy is to make him a friend’ by Abraham Lincoln. Yet what Lincoln forgot to acknowledge is that it is one’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.

So tell me: What is your pet-peeve?
