When the Electricity Goes Out

My ears start to focus on what’s going outside. All I can hear are the cars whizzing by, the rumblings of a nearby construction site, some indiscernible white noise, and even a few calling birds. My cat is chasing her tail, otherwise, the apartment would stand completely still. Stiller than ever. Not even empty nights … Continue reading

Some People

Some People – Some people are big, Some people are small, Some people are neither, But never “too tall”. – Some people have marks, Or scars like Harry Potter’s, But fair or dark, We all still need water! – Some people have hair, Some people are smooth, Some people don’t even care About the fountain … Continue reading

Romantic, descriptive, exciting and a page-turner. … Continue reading
