The outskirts of town are a strange place. They seem empty but if you look close enough you will be able to see some signs of life. Barracks, all in their rows, like a human hive, where all sorts of people live: the poor, pensioners, dealers, immigrants, rats, the working class, families and junkies. We’re […]

I haven’t seen him for a year. I know he’s not well. He wants to know if we can meet up. He comes over at around 10pm. My mother isn’t home. It’s just the two of us. The moment I see him it doesn’t feel like any time has passed at all, and I suddenly […]

The Field

The Field

My first memories are that of a huge cornfield. The immense beauty of nothingness. A warm wind that caresses my thoughts. The sky is grey, quiet, and I’m almost afraid to look at it. An inverted sea the depth of a thousand clouds. I hug my mother, I take in her perfume and touch her […]

This Is Who I Am

I still haven’t quite figured it out. The same tired old refrain keeps repeating itself: “Lower your expectations of others”.

They have always told me that you should never look in the mirror when you are high on ecstasy because you can ruin your trip. I did it anyway, and seeing my own face was terrifying: I looked like a monster. Michele was a 14-year-old kid, and he saw weed as just a hobby. It […]

“Look out everyone, here comes the black belt!” My schoolmate was teasing me again, pushing me into a corner, making people laugh at me. “Show us what you can do, black belt!” He came at me doing his best Rocky impersonation, and punched me straight in the nose. He split my lower lip open, staining […]

I met Jessica at a video game shop. I went there with a friend of mine because we had an appointment with some clients. I was impressed. She was a B-Girl. I fell in love instantly. I began to go to all the places where I knew I could find her. After a while we […]

Wondering who I was

Posted on Posted in Stories

I was dying inside … Middle school came. With me were two friends with whom I had always hanged around even at elementary school, and in that entirely new situation I stayed very close to them.  I was timid, closed and when I was with them I could feel a little safer. Because of my […]

When I was like them …

Posted on Posted in Stories

When I was like them … I could run on my heels for whole nights without feeling them. Now, after half an hour my feet ache, so I walk barefoot or wear my trainers and … I’m happy. When I was like them … I drank to forget and I felt great. Now, I cry […]
