A Letter From an Illusionist

I can make your heart stop for few seconds, or love in your heart that compels you to stare in awe at anything your eyes look at. I once made a girl disappear while everyone was watching and her mother cried out "bring back my daughter!" While I tried to hide my grin not to... Continue Reading →

To: The Light

Whose story would I tell you now? No one you know, or maybe yourself, and sometimes I don’t even know: He was standing on the stage trying to adjust his microphone for a very long time with intervals of annoying beeping of his microphone, so I got distracted for a long time thinking about the...

A Man in Time

He was the sole person I couldn’t feel time moving around whenever we conversed. I remember you would ask me: ”Who taught you to do that?” whenever I followed his words by suddenly standing in the middle of chaos like a statue with hands on my face. And I'd close my eyes tightly, imagine a... Continue Reading →

Stand Still

You wouldn’t understand how he’d start appearing like a sun, in a world that knows but a... Continue Reading →

My phone clutched in my hand Desperate whispers Prisoned tears Rise and fall of breaths Trapped inside my chest   There's only silence on the other end And my reflection in the mirror I feel more beautiful than ever   There's silence on the other end Phone unplugged The only whispers I hear are mine...

Finishing What I Started

Listen carefully. If you have to write down what I’ll say, then do so. But don’t let my micro breaks of sipping my black coffee interrupt your train of thoughts while you let my words sink in, because you shouldn’t underestimate the simplicity of my words. You’ll recall your mistakes, but before you do, I... Continue Reading →

Heartbeats

It’s 3 A.M and the sound of heavy rain cracking his window half-open wakes him up while his phone is loudly ringing. He picks up as thunder breaks the fragile clouds to pieces, and so they weep rain. There’s heavy breathing on the other end And he’s half-asleep. It takes him a while until he... Continue Reading →
