  • I Wouldn't Be Here if not for That Damn Piano

  • Getting in Trouble, of Course.

  • My love is in every drop of water

    The bathroom is lit only by the scented candles but there are dozens of them arrayed in geometric patterns on every flat surface. The room is warm and soft shadows cling to the walls, just waiting to detach and embrace someone. I’ve been running ...

  • a feast for two

    The cool leaves rasp against my skin. Their earthy smell tickles my nose and makes my mouth water. I inhale deeply and very faintly I can detect coffee and apple flavours. I start searching for the origin of this olfactory delight and soon enough find ...

    “Why do you want to talk now?” she asked me. Her voice wasn’t filled with anger, or hesitation. She was just asking a question. The truth was, I didn’t know the answer. In fact, I honestly had very little idea as to why I called...

  • Broken

    Lips touch. Spell is cast. A pause, eyes closed, savoring the moment. Further. Deeper. Eyes locked into oneness. Then, confusion. Doubt renders the holy unity broken. The leap of faith falls short of the other side.

    I was never afraid of her. People don’t believe me, especially when I tell them I’ve seen her work. But I’ve also seen her getting dressed, and she puts her pantyhose on one delicious leg at a time (though her’s come with a seam...
