Confessions

*Maybe it was all a bad dream.

You know the kind in which you wake up at the end screaming and laugh about later.

Yeah, that’s all it was. A bad dream.*

Oh great! Another sleepless night, full of nightmares. When will they stop? It happened so long ago..I can’t believe I am still dreaming about it.

-15 days later  *Talking to a psychiatrist*

Me:  I don’t know if I can talk about this. It is the worst memory of my life. It haunts me even now and I wake up screaming at night. I need to get over it but can’t. I am SO frustrated.

Psychiatrist:  You need to talk about it. It can’t be that bad.

Me: It’s about …. I can’t..I just can’t…

Psychiatrist: You need to get it out of your system. If you are too tired we can try again next week.

Me: It’s………ummmm……. It’s about……ummmmmmmmmmmmmmm……………………………………………………an A-minus I got……………………………………………………………………………………………………..back in grade 10.

A Day Without The Internet

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the rustle of the leaves reminds you of the whispers of fairies.

After getting breakfast out of the way, I stretch and turn on the computer.

As soon I click on the browser window, I know something is wrong.

And then to my horror, I realize that the internet is not working.

I rush to call the service provider and inform him of my predicament.

He in turn replies that the system is down and that it would probably be operational tomorrow.

Shattered; I sit down and prepare to spend my day without the internet.

And somehow, I survive.

Unseen

So I stood by the window watching them go.

And with them went all the happiness I had ever felt.

I wished they could see me now.

I wished they would turn around and see me standing at the window.

But they didn’t.

They didn’t look back as they took the coffin containing my lifeless body to the graveyard.
