Schrijfsel : Paralysed

A loud bang. She can hear the glass breaking. A heavy pressure on her chest. Adrenaline rushing through her body. Pure fear. She can hear him shouting. A girl starts screaming. Bloodcurdling screams. Crying out for help. A voice filled with pain. Fear. She can’t move. Her own fear has paralysed her. Another loud bang. Somethin...

Love. Nervous, Exciting. The secret looks, How you held my hand. How our mouths connected, Moonlight shining down on us. Fear and shame soon replacing love. Never to be spoken of again. Now just memories of the night before.

Schrijfsel : Stuck In A Moment

“You are not enough.” How was I supposed to move on from that? Move on from hearing you tell me those words? Was I supposed to just turn my back on you and walk away? Did you want me to cry? Not once did you apologise for hurting me like that. Did you even care? I can still picture you standing there. The sunset turning the ...

Once upon a time your eyes were filled with warmth. As I looked into them, I saw a calmness. It was like standing in a meadow, spri...
