    Rivière-du-Loup (RDL), a little town in northeastern Quebec claims to have the second most beautiful sunset after Hawaii. The sunset was indeed gorgeous- filled with vibrant colour and welcoming warmth, but it did not compare to the beauty of the people I shared it with. In summer 2010, I s...

    An opening in the branches gave way to a breath-taking view: strong rocks littered with trees rising out of the side of turquoise water and…my eyes widened in surprise, people! People scaling the cliffs! Directly in my view was a man, testing the rocks carefully before he stepped upwards. He never...

    Insist thou upon thy ways, askth me not for my says. Old methods may be tried, how true can change to the eye. New paths are sidelong rough, Nervousness framed by rude bluffs. Fight and bicker I desire not, the battle I quickly give up. If retreat is an act of cowardice, I care no...

    ‘Twas not for the lack of want, Nor for the lack of abilities, but pure and simple cowardice and fear that prevented me. Staring into bright headlights, frozen as the stony statues, unmoved as the speeding vehicle halts to a screeching stop. ‘Tis that incapability which Has possesse...

    My master he is the weaker of men. Reflects of his hairless crown pains the eye; Dull orbs so dimm’d gives nothing to commen’d Lips bloodless; pale like bitter winter sky. In unkept black straw one finds table scrap; Trembling composure words provide no cache. Rouge with powder create sh...

    Tug of war between this state of bliss And the reality we have to face, mm. Run away to a place all our own, I’m with you and that’s all I know, All I know. There’s a twinkling star up there in the sky, For every time you made me smile, Made me fly. Anywhere with you I’d follow, ...

    Green In the spring when flowers bloom, Everything comes to life, After a winter of gloom. The colour of grassy fields We ran on and laid on. The shade of new sprung leaves, Awaken after so long. Brown Heaven’s delicacy Dessert that melts in my mouth, and I reach for more, guilty. T...

    Blissful hours are not owned, Happiness comes with a price. Relish in those stolen moments, When your breath mingles with mine. Puffs of smoke disappear, Faster than I can make more. Our jackets add a splash of color, To the white canvas we stand in. Footprints left behind, Souvenir of jo...

    Silvery moon hidden behind a veil of clouds, Like a beautiful mistress peeking from behind velvet curtains, Now you see her, Now you don’t. Silvery blade hidden within a wall of plastic, Like a caged weapon of destruction demanding release. Now you see it, Now you don’t. Silvery bra...

    He puts the keys in the ignition and presses down on the gas pedal. The light of the bright object in the sky was fading slowly as he drives towards his destination. The radio is on and she sings along to the songs as the wind blows her hair into a mess around her face. Her hands clasp around the s...

    Her floral dress swings around her body as she skips a little in her steps; the bag in her right hand flies back and forth with her steps. She walked with a spring in her step towards the old brown building down the street that housed his psychology class. In the distance, she can see the sun st...

    First day of school! I've been in France for 2 weeks on a 3 month exchange program, and today was the first day of school for me. For the two weeks before that, I was on vacation like the rest of the students. This is the real test of this whole experience. I slept at about 12 the ni...

    I won’t pretend I know what it’s like, because I don’t. I won’t lie and say I understand, because I probably don’t. Hard as I try, I would never fully feel what it’s like to be walking on the darker side of life unless I actually go and do it. Like so many of us fortunates, we...

    Pulling out of his embrace, She turns to leave, Bereft of warmth. Fallen was the smile on her face, Taken over by a grimace, Hardness and firm. With head high, Her back to the light, She walks into the darkness that envelopes her....

    He kept his eyes closed for a second longer, relishing in the feeling of it all. She always pulled away too soon. He guessed it was because she was still a little shy. It’s funny, the only time she ever acts shy is around him. He opened his eyes to see her regarding him. He matches her gaze with ...

    His pink eyes are a reminder. That image is something I can’t get out of my mind. It’s the first real picture I have that embodies the full meaning of willpower. It must have taken a lot of power to not let loose. Can someone seem so untouchable yet so real at the same time? Can someone seem ...

    She walked like a zombie, unfeeling, unusually quiet. She mustered up what little energy she had to smile at her various classmates that passed her by. They can’t know something’s wrong. She tried hard to keep up the appearances. Most of them didn’t say anything. She didn’t look alright,...

    Earthquake to a magnitude Higher than any you’ve known. Reality, shattered so completely, Everything’s wrong. Heart-wrenching to watch, But I can’t turn away. Not when you’re swaying in the wind. When lightning strikes You can feel the ground Breaking beneath your feet The sun wil...

    So bright, Ray of sun. Shines on my world, Makes me whole. Captivating, Riveting eyes, Hard to let go, Looks into my soul. Mesmeric, An iron hold. Locking me down, Fallen, no doubt. So dark, A rebellious edge. Tainting the white, Without a fight. Hypnotized, Will crumb...

    They broke apart. Her arms still wounded around his neck and his hands still holding her close. Their breaths create little white puffs in the air that disappear faster than she would like them to. She looks into his eyes, the round pupil surrounded by shades of brown and gold and that colour she...

    “I’ve been carrying this thing around with me for a while now.” The tone of his voice sounded like it was no big deal. It probably wasn’t. To him anyway. She eyed the object in his hand warily. “Uh huh.” It was a knife, a gleaming silver knife with ragged edges and a red handle. Le...

    A couple of days ago I unexpectedly lost my job. Well, it wasn’t anything too important: I was just a carrier for the Scarborough Mirror. My job was to deliver the newspaper every Wednesday and Friday. It wasn’t anything great, but it brought in a good amount of pocket money for a student like m...
