The Café

The breeze from the door ruffled my blonde curly hair, dangling below my shoulders. I looked up with the slightest hope it was him stepping through the door. It wasn't; just another customer approaching me, with a fake end-of-the day smile, wanting their afternoon coffee. Yes, you guessed right. I was a coffee girl working as usual, all day six days a week in a small cafe off Queens St. W...

It was almost morning. The sun's rays shining with shy light. Traders have already begun setting up their stalls. A stray dog was kicked in the ass by the Blue dragon Inn Keeper. The dog barked in mid-air and ran away when the inn keeper chased him. "Stupid dog" said the Inn keeper as he un-mounted the bulls-eye oil lamp that hung above the inn sign.Back upstairs, In a fine cozy room, no...

It's not hard to be "just friends" with the girl you truly love. That is, if you have excellent self control. (Which is, by the way, as common as sky blue pandas.) You really need the self control... You need it every time you see her walking towards you, with a half smile on her beautiful face. She is wearing her bag across her shoulder. It nearly comes down up to her knees. You hate it...

   We met by the beach, didn’t we?  It was a beautiful day. If you don’t mind a bit of rain now and then.   Do you remember how gloriously the sun shone between the patches of rain though? It was like an angel smiling at us and I don’t think I’d been that happy in a long time. You let me run and take shelter with you when the rain got to...

The carnival for our first date was all lights and electricity. I knew it was just my heart beating faster, but I felt the lights shining brighter, and the people felt warmer as we walked through the Earthly star system to the soul of the world. I told him this and his short, quaint laugh filled me from top to bottom with the love I was ready to pour out for him.“Yeah,” he said as his ...

You’re not beautiful when you cry. You scrunch up your face, make strange sobbing sounds. Your mascara tracks, and your nose starts to run. You cling to me, and I think you look positively revolting. But still, I just love to see you cry. I’ve never been good at comforting people. So why I should make you feel better when you’ve hurt me, I don’t know. You shouldn’t be comforted. You do...

When you speak, the words that I wish I’d written come, a torrent of beauty in a few sentences.When you laugh, the sound that I spend hours wishing I could imitate comes cascading from you, reminding me of how the sunlight twinkles on a stream.When you cry, that very stream flows from you, down your cheeks, where I catch them with my hand.When you angrily toss that long red hair of yours tha...

I met Dave about 10 years ago. He used to tell me I have the smoothest skin he’s ever walked his fingers on. We’ve been together, as the saying goes, then switched to something else one august morning. Ever since, once a few months I get a call and him with a sheepish figure at my door.Long live the caller inventor, a girl gets to adjust her vocals makeup.“Hey, it’s me.&rdq...

The time as I remember it now was filled with flashing lights, muffled traffic sounds and a strangled cry's from my daughter seated next to me. I heard myself saying words to sooth and control this situation I knew I had no control over. My heart raced with each moment realizing I may be to late to see him one last time. My head forced to look straight forward at on coming traffic as tho it was th...
