    Rainy Day In The City

    This rainy afternoon, at 1.50pm, I saw a brown haired man sitting by the window of Chiswell street's EAT, digging into his takeaway lunch. Before I knew it, we locked eyes through the glass. I felt as if time had slowed down, my breath stolen, and the gloomy weather was grey no...

    Never Believed In Love At First Sight Before It Happened To Me

         I work as a nurse in a step down unit in a hospital. I'd been single for 6 months and was finally at a place where I accepted it and wasn't trying to turn every first date into marriage. I wasn't looking forward to my schedule that week, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday...

    What Is This?

    It had been a terrible time frankly. I tried and tried to get the mother of my children to move on with her life, so that I could move on with mine. Of course, she was heavily dependent on me so I offered to help her financially. She wouldn't budge one iota. She would sit outside...

    That moment, that millisecond.

    The very first instance you stare into her eyes and she smiles at you. It seems, just in that short span, she has made time stop. You slip into your mind. The area around you becomes surreal. Colors start to meld into one, objects become blurs, people become memories, and sound...

    One-Sided Love At First Sight.
