Memories: Cruel or Compassionate?

Memories: Cruel or Compassionate?

Memories are worse than bullets. ~Carlos Ruiz Zafón A bullet pierces the chest wall, scrambles the heart before blowing through the back leaving a spreading sanguine pool. Its work is done.

Painful Mirrors

Painful Mirrors

Deroot Your Mind

His mind stopped, like a dead clock, and he was still living with the ideas that were in his head when the clock stopped, showing the same time forever. ~V.S. Naipul Most people are open to new ideas, alternate realities until they reach maybe 18 years of age or until they graduate from University at […]
