Journey into paradise?

The heat was almost unbearable yet I carried on walking. I realized that soon I would have to find somewhere to shade, my body couldn’t take any more. It seemed like I had been walking for days but it could have been no more than a couple of hours. More than anything though I wanted water, and not... Sign in to see full entry.

Crawling

I swear they moved. It wasn’t a lot but they definitely did. Slowly they were inching forward. Then we moved a bit. They were still ahead of us but the gap was negligible. I wonder if, like us, they were beginning to wonder how long this would take. It was like sitting in a dentist’s waiting room.... Sign in to see full entry.

School Reunion

Sitting in my room staring at the invite I couldn’t quite believe it. Did I really want to go to some stupid school reunion? On the one hand I did then they would see that the class clown had made something of his life. Yet on the other there was one thing that made me want to stay away. She would...

A night on the town

I felt so thirsty. I had drunk so much water there was no way I should be but it was true. Maybe water wasn’t the right thing to drink when I felt like this, yet I never had. I don’t know why I was so thirsty but I was also hungry. Glancing at the clock I saw it was only seven in the evening, plenty... Sign in to see full entry.

Sadness

It is happening again. Why does it seem to keep happening to me? No matter what I do the result always seems to be the same. Trying to look logically I can’t see why. Did I do something wrong? Racking my brains searching for an answer, any answer. It will come to me, it always does. I have always... Sign in to see full entry.

There is a point

There seemed to be only one way out of this mess. Picking up the bottle in front of him he took another massive gulp. He didn’t really like the taste but it did its job, he always managed to get drunk and fall asleep after a bottle of the stuff. He hated the way his life had spiraled out of control....

Escape !

I was panicking. Everywhere I looked everything seemed the same. I turned around and around not knowing what I should do next or which direction I should head in. I was all alone, yet I could hear voices, some faint and some louder. The best thing was for me to compose myself as an unknown fear... Sign in to see full entry.

The Room Beyond

He was scared. It wasn’t the first time he had been scared, but this was the worse he had ever been. All around him he could see big people. And the big people kept looking at him. There were a lot of strange noises coming from behind the closed door. Even some of the big people glanced nervously at... Sign in to see full entry.

No more waiting

It had been coming for a long time. He knew it had, but still he wasn’t ready for it when it did. He had been planning for this minute for months. Ever since the day the news had broke. He had lost track of the number of times he had planned his route. He had driven it once a week as well, leaving... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm so cold, why?

It was cold, colder than I had ever known it. I sat up and looked around, trying to get my bearings. Where was I? and why was it this cold? I rose from the bed and started to walk. Where was everyone? I couldn't see or hear anyone, yet I knew there had to be someone about, someone who could help me.... Sign in to see full entry.
