I had a long discussion with a friend about my free-writing entries where i tell stories of corrupt or failed relationships. I was told that i write these stories as if I lived through them, and that I should try to compile them and present the work in the form of a book. It sounded like a good idea, but I have so many unfinished projects that needs my attention more. so then, being as though these pieces of work had already been posted, I compiled the links of the stories and present to you, the “BAD ROMANCE” collection. Do enjoy.

The conversation went exactly as it occured five years ago. First catching up on things as if they were nothing more than old friends. They both didn’t dare speak on current relationships or marital status, though the subject sat on the edge of their lips, waiting to be asked.
It was as if everything said and done in the past had just dissapeared from their history, but they both had never forgave and forgot. The abuse, and unfaithfulness, the history that hovered over them like dark clouds that could erupt with acid rain at any moment, at any time one of them decides to reflect upon a dark period in their past. But they’ve always kept it clean and played cool in their first conversation since splitting apart. It always played out the same. Nothing changed but their age. Continue Reading
