An Unbeatable Game

I think one of the greatest horrors of the modern world is that it rendered most of us stuck in survival mode. We are worried about what will happen to us in the next few days and months, wondering whether we will be able to hold onto a floating log to survive the next wave. It’s so cruel when you…

An Empty Page

If I could write something to spill out all I want to say, I’d leave the page empty. Why the hell am I writing then? You may ask. For the same reason I do everything I do, for no damn reason. That’s the whole problem, and there’s no problem at all. The thing is, I’m far beyond it, even though…

At The Altar

He’s looking in her direction, not directly in her eyes though, he just can’t. Maybe he’s worried that his eyes will betray him, that his weakness will escape them and perform a frenzied dance to amuse her. Maybe he’s looking for answers that might be hovering around her, that’s why his pupils are shaking left and right. But what good…

Silly Little Things

Do not fool yourself, loneliness is never a choice. It’s just that you’ve given up on the “silly” little things people cling to in order to escape it. And thus you fell too deep into the hole of isolation, where no sound, nor light could ever reach, thinking that it will somehow make you superior to the ones who desperately…
