One pair of heavy footsteps make their way up four steps and walk steadily across the front deck, followed by an intrusive pounding on the front door. I don’t know who it is or what they want, but I do know I’m in grave danger. Leaping up off my bed, I lunge into the hallway […]
Thousands of hands hold their gripInch by inch you feel yourself slipOne by one they pull you through darknessDeeper you go, into the starkness Falling through the thick blanket of nightGrasping at thin air, your body turns lightAs you enter a place that is primarily statelessYou will see what it means to be truly weightless When you […]
Walking down the road I can feel the wind on my face before twirling with strands of my hair, sending them dancing. The sharp coolness of the air that swoops in once the sun goes down is already here, leaving my face achey and cold. I wrap my arms around me to keep warm but […]
I look up at the sky to see a crack running through a tall, sloped building directly in front of me. It’s only a matter of time before it reaches the top and it’s split in two, the first side already coming away from the rest. I turn my back on it and start sprinting […]

You’re toxic. I can’t breathe when I’m around you; the air becomes so incredibly polluted. You bring negativity and destruction into my life and you watch as they turn my world upside down. You bring my comfortable, secure state into a world full of doubts, tears, misery and suffering.
Hold my heart in your hands and be gentle with it. It’s fragile like crystal; it would smash if you dropped it and there would be no way of putting it back together again. I trust you with all my heart so please be careful – take care of it like your life depends on […]
Walking through the flames, I don’t feel the heat burn or even touch my skin. They leap out on either side of me while bright, hot embers shoot out and threaten to hit me. I can almost see their gleaming, evil eyes as they dare me to keep walking.
When you look outside all you see is jagged, shards of glass scattered in every direction on the concrete ground. You don’t know why they’re there, and although a part of you wants to find out, another part of you tells you that you won’t like what you see once you do. The sight is ugly with pieces of sharp […]
I can feel my heart thrumming in my chest as I run through the forest. It’s so loud I swear I can hear it clearly in my ears and wonder if that will be what gives me away. Surely they can hear it, too? Isn’t that how they’re going to find me in a few seconds […]
