Re-Introducing Me

For years, I’ve hidden behind the pseudonym of Jade M. Wong and the profile picture of an anime girl. I’ll still be using the pseudonym, but I’m ready to stop hiding.

To my blogging friends, my readers, and the whole wide world, are you listening? Can you see me? I’m re-introducing myself. Continue reading “Re-Introducing Me”

[Flash Fiction] Return To Sender

Spring cleaning had a tendency to unearth past lives she spent years forgetting. Staring at the raggedy shoebox, she felt the lock on the memories turning in her mind.

She picked up the London postcard with the bright red double decker bus. She didn’t have to turn it over to remember what was written on the other side. Before the memories of riding through the city with his hand in hers could escape the lock in her mind, she pushed the postcard aside. Continue reading “[Flash Fiction] Return To Sender”

[Flash Fiction] Fame, Fortune, and Empty Hearts

“But why me?” The words hovered over them, each letter holding its breath for his response.

He sat across from her at her kitchen counter, dressed incognito as always. His black sweatshirt covered his tattoos and the hood covered his platinum blond hair. Where did he begin to find his own words to answer her? Continue reading “[Flash Fiction] Fame, Fortune, and Empty Hearts”

[Poetry] Stronger

“Leave me alone,” Love spat as she curled up on the couch.

Pain silently refilled Love’s glass of wine.

“I said, leave me alone!” Love dissolved into choking sobs. She wrapped her arms around herself for protection. With a gentle touch of his finger, Pain shattered the shield like glass. Continue reading “[Poetry] Stronger”

Monday Morning Melts #4

Jade: Nobody melts my love-loving heart quite like the Backstreet Boys. I suppose growing up in the era of 90s boy bands, that was inevitable. This week, I’d like to share with you all a classic, in the hopes that the sweet vocals and sweeter lyrics of my favorite boy band will melt your heart as well.

PROMPT: [As Long As You Love Me – Backstreet Boys]

Although loneliness has always been a friend of mine
I’m leavin’ my life in your hands
People say I’m crazy and that I am blind
Risking it all in a glance Continue reading “Monday Morning Melts #4”

Monday Morning Melts #3

Rosema: As you probably know, I love Jason Mraz. Well, love is an understatement.❤ So for my second pick for Monday Morning Melts, it is no doubt a song from my ultimate music beau.

I Won’t Give Up and Lucky are among his biggest ‘sweet’ hits. But to introduce you to a rather unknown but equally heart tickling song, here’s “In Your Hands”. The part I picked are for me the sweetest lines that has ever been written. Especially that “what I choose is you.” Aaaah. I am feeling so in love.😀 (with Jason. HAHA)

I hope this lovely song will inspire you.❤

PROMPT: In Your Hands- Jason Mraz

But when you’re alone
You’re living in a world with only choices
And what I choose is you Continue reading “Monday Morning Melts #3”

[Poetry] Brave

“Be brave with me,” he whispered.
His eyes pleaded with mine.
“We keep dancing around each other,
Let’s not waste any more time.”
With a hand cupping my cheek,
He pulled me in for a kiss.
That was when I discovered
The meaning of bliss.

[Poetry] The Proposal

I don’t have a car to take you riding through the city,
But I’ll walk with you hand in hand with the nightlife as our guide.
I can’t offer you fancy dresses or jewels,
But I’ll never lie or make you cry if you’ll have me by your side.

We might not have a sprawling mansion,
But we’ll definitely have a home,
And you’ll never spend a second wondering
If you’ll ever feel alone. Continue reading “[Poetry] The Proposal”

[Poetry] The Empty Room

Sometimes, we’ll do everything we can not to see the signs.
They can be flashing neon, but we’ll still choose to be blind.

Sometimes, we’ll refuse to hear the voices in our heads.
They can be loud and shrill, but we’ll tune them out instead. Continue reading “[Poetry] The Empty Room”

[Poetry] Epiphany

I didn’t know it until that moment
The words hung over us in midair
Her dark eyes wondered if I meant it
And I realized then how much I cared.

I counted our heartbeats in the silence that followed
And I felt the truth so clearly
The woman I loved stood before me
And I knew she would always have me.
