Life Hack: Books

I absolutely love owning things: from designer bags to extracted molars. All types of things. They can be gifted, inherited, or bought. I only keep things that bring me joy though, in case St. Marie Kondo sees this post. Maybe that’s why I love books or the mere act of buying and owning books. It’s […]

Regression

Statistically speaking, regression does not justify causation. It does, however, prove correlation. But this is not a statistical lesson. I just want to define it that way to cater to my own inclination towards the field. The regression I want to talk about is literally regressing or going back to a previous state. I did […]

y___r____g

Starting off from the foot of my bed Crawling up to my face With a grin that can match stars I echoed your lust you penetrated my sorrow and it cried as your body enveloped mine I close my eyes once more and find you sitting and grinning Again, the universe align Eyes that smile […]

We spend another night At the comma bed as he Drove me to calmness And took away my transgressions I combat in level-headed feat And struggle but my eyes Would quarrel with my teeth I gnash and blink Somewhere between The fitted sheets and sturdy beds Comes plastic full of specimens Of my own aversion […]

Investigatory […]

Rain On Me (not a Lady Gaga reference)

It was a rainy afternoon when I wrote this, what I now will call a paradox or maybe a cliche perhaps. Although it’s raining, I can feel sweat building up underneath my breasts, just like how the rain is puddling up on top of my aunt’s car cover. It is wet, and it’s not quiet. […]

From One week to Six years

I finally got the tooth out. Nobody knows how much pain and suffering this tooth has given me better than myself. It’s like every time I had a medical exam I’d get this notice from the examiner about my broken tooth. As if I don’t know. Here’s a short background: 2014 I went to the […]

Friends: Part 2

They’s non-binary, I could tell by the way they speaks about themself. Thinks they’s human sometimes, other times a variety of other ground– crawling creature. I think they just means they have multiple personalities which for me is a super power. Then there’s Lou, he’s ok. He just eats my hair sometimes. I grab him […]
