It was a long trip a short cliff. Such was the vehicle of his “demise.” Although it didn’t seem that way at first to onlookers. But then most people don’t consider the way down as part of the intended route. He had planned his obsolescence down to the last detail. Dressed like a steam punk dandy he pedaled this cumbersome contraption like a fool the edge. And like a fool he happily vanished into the abyss. Curiously his body was never found. Some say he must have found a portal while others assumed wild animals made quick work of the easy meal.

she was, without a care for others… or was it at the beach with the waters lapping, clear and warm before the change comes as ou head further out… where the rocks and stones are, where it can hurt
just like her and her shallow narrow barbs

The group of people huddled together in the dank cave.
John raised his head, praying for someone – anyone – to find them. To find them. Or at least for the roof to come crashing down and put all of them out of their misery.
The floor was moist, and so was the air. Water dripped from stalactites jutting out of the ceiling like icicles.

the machine said. Embarassed she stuffed the card back into her wallet hoping that nobody else in the queue had seen. She lifted her eyes hesitantly towards those of the cashier, hoping that she would find some empathy from this women. Unfortunately for her, this ‘women’ was a hard faced 17 year old who could do with some sound make up advice

Looking back the steps that led up to an act of mistrust most unexpected, only left me with the bitter taste of an unfaithful spirit.

for themselves and for one another, well that’s what they had always said. But there were others with whom they shared their affection but was that necessarily a bad thing? If something is so lovely and sweet and innocent then why do you have to lock it way and keep it just for one other…

is that her excuse for having such little connection with the outer world? I know she likes to think that it means that she is bolder, unconstrained by the rules and regulations of the rest of the world but really she just lives in another reality. Perhaps that makes her weak as she hides behind her cynicism

I roll about on the grass in delight. The sun is shining, I am alone, and it’s a good day. I lie back and watch the clouds scudding past the sun like giant fluffy sky-sheep.

“I already did this one yesterday – this is what happens when you do prompts after midnight,” she said wistfully, but started typing anyway.
It’s been a wistful sort of day. I wish I’d been quicker yesterday.

‘Wistful’ is a word that should mean ‘full of wists’, but ‘wist’ isn’t a word. What is a wist? A feeling? An emotion? It sounds a bit like whisp so I’m picturing some kind of misty emotion thing. A misty thing that one can be full of. Wists.

“Steady as you go!” he calls out.
I scowls. “I know what I’m doing.” I begin the tightrope walk to the next balloon. I am steady, but my insides are shaking. I try not to let on, because he’d never let me live it down.
“Steady!” he calls again. I can’t glare at him this time because I can’t turn around.

“It’s just a decoy. Aim to the left,” said the crackling voice. I winced and switched it off. Decoy or not, I trust my own eyes. Aim to the right and fire. Crack-boom. Did I miss?

It’s a joyous day. My wings have finally come in. I flap happily around the back garden while my mother shouts at me to come down.
“The neighbours will see!” she calls.
“They’re just jealous their children don’t have wings,” I call back. I fly higher, up towards the clouds.

I’m up on stilts. I’m a bird. Caw.
Get down. You’re being ridiculous.
No. These are my stilts. You come up here or I won’t talk to you. Ca-caw.
This is absurd. You’re not a bird.
Ca-caw. Ca-caw. Caw.

Sometimes when I am overwhelmed with school work, my mind goes into a complete frenzy. I start freaking out and hyperventilating. I suppose you could equate that to an anxiety attack.

Do good things come in pairs, she wondered? Not always. Good things come in three, everyone knows that. Things in pairs just gang up on you. She did not like pairs. She’d stick with just herself, thank you.

Pixels glint in his eyes, but I don’t care. “If I were real,” he says.
“Don’t,” I say. “You’re as real as I want you to be.”
He smiles, and keeps pretend-eating his food. I eat my real food and pretend he isn’t a robot.

on the ship they sail, into the past, engraved in wood, they laugh in distortion but really it is not they but whom they caricturise that is important, they sailed away but the true fools remain… remain in control

she scurried by, just in front of those heavy feet. It was just too tempting, how could she stay away? Her nostrils quivered and little waves of extasy flowed down her furry little back as she raced across the open floor to reach her labyrinth beneath the stove

at the bottom of the garden, she felt isolated from everyone. Whether the pink of her skirt or the lue of the pinafore peeked out from behind the tree what was important to is that in her mind she was invisible. It was so boring all the grownups and there chatter

Michael Crichton had it all wrong. People going backward & forward, the dark ages, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance… When they turned it into a movie, it made no sense. Or so I heard. I don’t really care. I never saw it.

or gaurantee it doesn’t really matter just as long as you make it happen. Call it what you will but it is still your responsibility, don’t even doubt that at this moment there is any leeway to me not putting you completely and utterly in charge of this situation

your hands around mine as we dive in deep together, the rush of cold water isn’t what tingles your spine but it is the ruch towards the dark abyss below. never so we ruch towards the unknown only now do we fling ourselves so willing before it, for we know that the surface is not far away. But as we sit on top laughing neither of us allows the other to see that hint of primordial fear because we all know that the only thing that could live down in these cold, daark, rocky depths will be no friend of ours

her hands tightly around the top of her handbag, the knot the brooch there was named the same as the white tight skinned knuckes of her hand

A place we used to visit, Jackie and I. Pickled onion chips that’s crisps for people from other countries. We used to chat away walking down that long road which isbactuallybonly a few blocks but seemed so long then. And when I needed a wee but was still a few blocks from home, I would kneel down shove the heel of my foot into the hole and that seemed to allow me to keep going for longer. Apples were 5 cents. Groovy cool drinks we the new cooldrinknon the block. Of course as we neared the boy loving stage, we would find any excuse to walk down to the cafe in the hope of bumping into one of our latest passions.

Paper is flat, you can barely see it if it’s placed horizontally. It is almost see through, and yet it can hold so much emotion, so much power, so much inspiration.

Live life on the edge, live, love, laugh!

My principal aim was to help them, but somehow I missed the mark as usual. I tried to reach out to grab them, but as I did the branch broke and in fact they fell down to a worse place than before. I think they might have been able to recover but then I fell down on top, taking everything with me.
