There they stood in a line, the guillotine sat smugly at a distance that felt a million miles away. All I happened to be doing was passing by when one man caught my eye, a cold blue that I had recognized.
I never knew the man’s real name other than the nickname that was used by his neighbors. They called him Saddy for how unfortunate his life had been. Saddy’s fiancée died just a few weeks be...
Porch Swing Arrivals
“I think I just met the happiest person in the world!” Alder shouted from past the mailbox as he fumbled through the lawn with his bags and books — glasses drifting from the bridge of his nose.
“Oh yeah?” I said, eyebrows raised and craned his way as I tried to express my interest from the porch swing. Alder always had a story incoming. In the casual, yet completely disorganized, way that Alder ...
I think I just met the happiest person in the world.
The sadness in her eyes vanished. There was more than an ocean in which she drowned. The blue in her eyes stopped suffocating her, it started to resemble the sky.
Skies in which birds were flying, the sun was shining. A world full of laughter and smiles.
The only tears that are flowing are tears of happiness.

“Ik denk dat ik zojuist de vrolijkste persoon op aarde ontmoet heb,” vertel ik mijn ouders als ik na een weekendje Eindhoven aanschuif aan de eettafel. Robbie ken ik al een aantal maanden via Youtube en vandaag heb ik hem dan ook voor het eerst in het echt gezien. Aangezien hij jonger is dan dat ik ben, spraken we bij hem thuis af, zodat zijn ouders me ook gelijk konden ontmoeten. Gelukkig waren z...
A Look Through The Hourglass

“I think I just met the happiest person in the world!”
That’s what I thought when my brother told me that he got a job.
He had come a long way. I was very proud of him.
At the same time I also felt sorry for myself. I haven’t gotten a job. It has been a long time since I got mg degree but I have had no luck. Moreover, no matter how hard I tried to look, the employers were only looking for people ...
"I think I just met the happiest person in the world." exclaimed Natasha, my fellow barista working the afternoon shift. The coffee shop was decently full today with regulars on their lunch break. I glanced over at Natasha while cleaning the milk pitcher from the latest order. Natasha was the easy-going sort, never going into more detail or answering more than what was asked. "Yeah?" I pushed, "wh...
In the World
“I think I just met the happiest person in the world”
She’s sitting in her room alone, of course. A Tuesday night in the winter, she should have been asleep hours ago. Her makeup from the day is long gone, not carefully wiped off with a cleanser but run off by her tears. Her eyes are red, but not from weed. She’d never dare try it, to scared to get high, scared of what her mother would say, scar...
Happiness Doesn’t End
“I think I just met the happiest person in the world!” I’ve never seen someone so happy. Calmy, I approached her tempting to ask her what is it that is making her this happy? As i came closer, she turns around and bumps into me. Apologizing, she calmy says, “I just finalized my divorce.” Someone being that happy just to get away from someone must have been a bad marriage. “Oh I completely understa...
"I think I just met the happiest person in the world!" Is what I've said or thought so many times about many people that I have met. I always thought that if someone was always smiling, and talking on and on about random things, that they were happy. Until I was that person. I would act happy and walk around with a fake smile everyday and people mistaked me for a happy person when I was anything b...
