    Mum hated spiders, so did I.

    As a particularly evil punishent when I was a child she'd make me go outside into the garage and use the end of a broom to remove cobwebs. It made me absolutely hysterical. I'd be crying and begging her, anything but that, but it was futile. As you walked in there was a dank...

    Dear Professor, I'm posting this letter here,

    because I know I'll never have the courage to send it to you directly. I doubt you'll ever read it on here, but at least, I'll feel much better knowing you might eventually come across this letter, one day, when I'm gone far far away. For the past three years, the three years...

    I can't remember much of what went on between

    us, though lately flash backs have been happening slowly. Like I just remembered today, I was terrified to join the Valentines Court, scared you might get mad at me because I'd have to walk out with another boy. Was that how early things started breaking? The second month? I can...

    I am sitting in my kitchen looking out across

    the road at an empty parking lot. If one didn't know the history of my town, it would seem that this parking lot serves no purpose as there is no building for it to belong to. And truth be told it doesn't serve a purpose anymore. It's just an abandoned parking lot that rarely...

    I remember back to when I was younger.

    My mom had picked me up from elementary school and told me my dad was hit by a truck while walking to his car to come home. I thought I had lost my father but he fought through it. He's always been a fighter through everything. He was strong, never weak. Now, 10 years later, he...

    Now And Then

    I remember when we first met. I feel like I’ve known him for so long. I knew then that I will love him for the rest of my life no matter what. I just wish that I could stand his attitude. He asks a lot -.- But I do love him always and forever.

    Right now I picture him in

    that old barbers chair; unchanged, his white beard blotted with chunks of bright yellow paint. In his frail weathered hands he cradles a block of wood. Back-and-forth he rocks and with each tap of his foot, bare against the marble flooring, he carves into the block. An...
