On hold

On hold

I’ve been trying to write, but it seems borderline impossible to finish anything lately. I’ve started dozens of different essays and short stories, but as inspired as I might feel as I start them, it seems to fall flat halfway through it. It is so frustrating… How can I dare to call myself a writer … Continue lendo

The Morning After

The Morning After

“God” – was all she could think to herself as she fought to open her tired eyes – “How much did I drink last night?” Her lids felt heavy and couldn’t seem to work together. She half opened her right eyes as her left one kept blinking incessantly, more sensitive to the dim light of … Continue lendo

To make you feel my love

To make you feel my love

Have you ever been asked to prove your love? I have. You wanna know the truth? No matter how ready I thought I was for it… I was wrong. Having your feelings questioned is just about the most disrespectful thing you can go thorough….. really. At first, when I fell in love with an English … Continue lendo

Everything you want for me…

I know what im supposed to write, what my decreasing handful of faithful readers expect fo find from my new not exoctic aventure as I crawl into the leather that is london, in it’s fake fashion statements, false lashes and overdone spray tan. London is a lie at its core. The women as not as … Continue lendo

Three wishes

Three wishes

Have you ever played the genie game? The one where you ask each other what would your three wishes be if you found a gennie in a bottle? And you couldn’t wish for more wishes….That thought has crossed my mind today, and aside from the obvious answer of “money” I think I finally figured out … Continue lendo

If you haven’t heard about it yet, let me offer you the gist of it: a 17 year old girl called Hanna takes her own life. Weeks later, a boy called Clay Jensen receives a package containing 13 tape recordings … Continue lendo

Wish you were here

Wish you were here

I knew this day would come, but it had never crossed my mind just how empty it would really feel to celebrate my father’s birthday without him for the first time. Many times over the last several months I have found small things that remind me of him. A song, a movie, a play… that … Continue lendo

Homeless

Homeless

Today all day I’ve been taken over by a feeling that I couldn’t quite explain. A sense of abandonment, a solitude that made my skin crawl and my teeth clench in desperation. It stuck with me as I was feeding the cat, folding the laundry, cooking lunch. It followed my footsteps on the sunny streets … Continue lendo

Head spin 

I feel off. The last couple of days have been so strange I simply don’t feel like myself for most part of them. In some strange way, it is like the planet has shifted ever so slightly from its axis, just enough so tides can flow higher along the shores, something that seems subtle, but … Continue lendo

What about what YOU want?

What about what YOU want?

For days now, my Facebook timeline has been an undying list of articles promissing to clarify “What a girls can to to get her man”  ou “What men really want out of a relationship”. I confess that, sometimes lying in bed, I read those lists to my boyfriend and they become a real joke between … Continue lendo
