    Standing in the middle of the road he looked out to the horizon, first in one direction, than the other. She kept to the side walk, glancing nervously down each street for the next car to come and knock him over.
    “Oi, stop that now. A car’ll come by and you’ll get run over.”
    He turned to her, a wide grin on his face full of teeth.

    The wreath on the front door was in disarray, just hanging on it’s nails. The door was opened, a bloody hand print staining the wood right above the door knob.

    The knock knock knock at the door was an ominous sound. I felt like I was running in slow motion, seeing everything unfold before my eyes at such speed I knew I’d never get there in time to stop the disaster. I could see her little hand, innocently reaching up for the door knob.

  • Raiine commented on the post, steps 6 years, 11 months ago

    It was the first step. The first step to becoming who I wanted to be. Or was it. Was that really who I wanted to be still. My goals had changed, my views, my life. I wasn’t so sure any more. Perhaps this step was no longer mine to take.

    My wisdom teeth are starting to appear. I wonder what wisdom teeth are for. They crowd your mouth and are often removed so why do we have them in the first place?

    She ran her hands over the canvas. Savouring the feel of the uneven surface, the texture of the painting and recreating the image of the painting she couldn’t see in her mind.

    It’s a scary thought that in just 6 months I’ll be in my final year of school and preparing to go out into the world. My life will be own to do with what I will. I’m not sure I’m ready for that kind of freedom just yet.

  • Raiine commented on the post, half 7 years, 1 month ago

    Half. Half of what? Half a cake, half a piece of chalk? Half a person, a plate, a film, a chair? Why have half of something when you could have the whole thing?

  • Raiine commented on the post, dare 7 years, 2 months ago

    It was all a joke. It was only a joke, honest. That’s all. He wasn’t meant to take it so seriously. I guess he felt a need to prove himself, being as new in the group as he was. He hadn’t needed to though. Not to […]

    The gum trees outside swayed with the wind. The rustling of the leaves, a soothing backdrop to a quiet afternoon spent curled up on the couch with a book.

    “GO! Run, what are you waiting for?” I didn’t understand. I could see his lips moving, the sounds in the distance reaching my ears but I could not comprehend their meaning. Before I knew it, I was staring down the […]

    It was supposed to be a little bit of fun. Harmless fun. But I suppose it always is. Until it isn’t and your watching someone you care about, more than you ever knew, being carried away.

  • Raiine commented on the post, motion 7 years, 3 months ago

    Going through the motions. Everyday, the same mind-numbing routines. Repetitive. Monotonous.

    The seeds of hope were planted. Whether that was what they had intended, they were there, buried deep down in the hearts of the people.

  • Raiine commented on the post, dwell 7 years, 3 months ago

    I dwell on things too much. Overthink everything. I spend so much of my time thinking, I hardly ever get off my arse and do anything. Damn shame now that I think about it. Oops, there I go with the thinking again.

  • Raiine commented on the post, minute 7 years, 3 months ago

    One minute. One minute ago, he was alive. One minute ago, I could have saved him. One minute was all it took. A minute. And then he’s gone, just like that. That’s all it takes.

  • Raiine commented on the post, pits 7 years, 4 months ago

    Dents in the ground. Dug out in their quest for wealth and with it, power. They don’t care for the landscape they are destroying, for the wounds they are inflicting upon the earth.
