I'd love any constructive criticism you have to provide. Hopefully I'm not a waste of your time! (feel free to tell me if I am though! How else am I meant to improve?)

FREE WRITING

21 years. 21 years of memories lost. Moments that could have been. Paper aeroplanes that could have been made in the midst of a summer afternoon. Just you and me. In your bedroom, the backyard, anywhere we would wander. I never remembered how much your eyes lit up at the mention of a Tim-Tam left unsupervised on the table, but in this moment, it was becoming infinitely clearer. I remembered all the nights that were, and all the nights that...

Through a Child's Eyes

PROMPT: Child Narrator

Through a child's eyes,
the world's a surprise.
There are no limits for them,
not even the skies.
From their point of view,
everything's new.
They can reach for the stars,
just so long as they shoot.
But as they grow old,
they start to grow up.
And all the faraway things, become a little closer up.
Their minds start to protest, 
and they can no longer see 
the world in a way that's different to the rest.
But when moments become...

21 years

21 years. 21 years of memories lost. Moments that could have been. Paper aeroplanes that could have been made in the midst of a summer afternoon. Just you and me. In your bedroom, the backyard, anywhere we would wander. I never remembered how much your eyes lit up at the mention of a Tim-Tam left unsupervised on the table, but in this moment, it was becoming infinitely clearer. I remembered all the nights that were, and all the nights that could have been. 21 years in which we could have laughed, cried, shared stories. You could have told me about your first friend, first crush, and the one who would eventually take you away from me. It could have been perfect; it would have been perfect. But a drunk driver clearly didn’t think so. He took himself, and in his haste, he took you too. One look around the corner would have meant that you could have retrieved the ball...

Through a Child's Eyes

But when moments become their last,
and final words are cast,
they can finally once again see,
the dreams of their past.

The Deafening Sound

The deafening absence of mother's heartbeat.

The Last Moments

It was the 23rd of July, 1916 at Pozieres. In the 6th Australian Light Horse Regiment, fighting in the Army Flying Corps. His plane was falling rapidly and blood was running up his face. He had wounds that would never get the chance to heal, spread throughout his chest. The glass on the plane's windscreen was cracking at a slow and traumatizing pace. Knowing you're going to die and having to experience that was not what he'd had in mind. His fiancé was going to be waiting for him, hoping he'd arrive home. 'Would she miss me?' It was a question he'd asked himself many times, but he never thought that he would need the answer. His parents, brothers and sisters would all be waiting at the gates when he was meant to arrive home. He soon realised, that they would be waiting forever. The ground was now approaching swiftly and the glass looked like a fractured diamond.
His name was Lewis...

Why I Write

Why I Write...

Sinking into a world that is better than reality and imagining beautiful places. Creating a world more than blackness for the blind and composing graceful music and sound for those who cannot hear. You can escape the stresses of the world and channel all your feelings and emotions into a character. Making their own problems larger than yours, always seeming to make things feel a little bit better. Anyone can make a huge difference with words; you could change the world with them. They are the most powerful thing in the universe. You can bring people to feel love, anger, sadness, disgust, hate, or help them to be content knowing that they are not alone. You can invent magic, fantasy and anything you like. Having time to do something like writing is necessary to help you love your life. It's okay to put down whatever you like. There are no limits for your imagination.

Life

People and things, buzzing all around me. The world was moving too fast for me to keep up. I was the only thing moving at a regular pace. It was like I was watching a 4D movie that someone had pressed fast foward on. I was stuck. I didn't know how to make it out of the crowd. Everything was passing me by too quickly. I tried moving fast with the blinding colours moving around me. I could barely keep up. If I kept going fast along with everyone else I knew I wouldn't have enough time to live out my life properly. But if I slowed down and went at my own pace, I wouldn't have anyone else. I would be alone. I didn't know what choice to make. At that moment I realised something that I would remember for the rest of my days whether or not they went by quickly or at my own pace. That's life...

Floating

Flying

Cut off, free of all the worries that had troubled me before. I was flying. Even if I flew to close to the sun I would not follow in the footsteps of Icharus and fall back down. I did not have wings of wax and feathers. I was floating on a cloud. I could feel the wind and the breeze through my hair and my fingertips. Everything in the past was gone now. It passed me by like a moving car passed a normal person on the sidewalk. With not a thought or care. For I was not returning to the world I used to know. That was now far, far below me. Gone. For now I was free. Free, flying with the wind and living amongst the clouds which were now my new home. These were the things I would know and love as familiar surroundings forevermore. Floating in mid-air. Drifting with the wind. Flying. 

Walking

The Foot-race

I saw her moving towards me with anger in her eyes. She moved faster. She walked leaning slightly to the left and it was kind of like a skip-hop, instead of something normal. I started to run, and she picked up the pace. This time she leaned foward and ran suprisingly quickly for an old hag, although she didn't look like she would keep it up for very long. She slowed and started to plod along like a sick puppy trying to catch up to it's owner. She started to lean to her left again, and then finally, she came to a halt.I kept going for a while and when she was out of sight, I stopped too and realised how much my legs were aching. I had escaped her, but I knew that I wouldn't be safe for long. She would try again and come back harder, and the next time it wouldn't just be a foot-race...
