I stared at the floor, with a disconcerted look in my eyes. All the memories played repeatedly in my mind like a series...of flashbacks.
The rain beat down on my window, a little louder than before. I lifted my gaze towards the dark glazed windows of my bedroom, heavy clouds scattered the sky which now wore a forlorn aura.
My eyes reverted to the cold floor of my bedroom, i could feel the draught as it ruffled beneath my feet.
I shivered.
I turned to my side and now- I lay on my floor perfectly still, curled up.... motionless.
I closed my eyes as the past recollected in my mind.
The tears,were now streaming down my face uncontrollably. I closed my eyes tighter .. and wished.
The realization struck me, and now i felt colder than ever the dark and gloomy atmosphere seemed more transcendent than ever.
All, was lost.No hopes. No dreams..
Now i knew... I was alone

(Sorry this took so long =) ) I believe that this needs to be longer...because it's really good now, which means if it had more substance and a backstory, it would most-likely be REALLY good. If you know what I mean xD Keep writing!

I think this definitely has potential. The writing was good and everything. I just was lost as how to feel for your character, because I didnt know any of the back story. Go ahead, I would say, and add something to this. I think it would be an interesting piece. And let me know when you do!

How do I critique a piece like this? When I know it's missing something but I can't put my finger on it? Probably means you need more story. This lacked, lacked, lacked in background. This is more like a poem than a story, and I think you could easily morph it into something more accessible to readers if you did change it to a poem. Be creative with the spacing maybe.

Aww, so, so urgh. Hahaha, There is no other expression I can say describing this peice.

So get rid of "of my bedroom" because you've already mentioned it once. Be careful to show not tell (I do this all the time). I this, I that isn't pleasing to read. There are some typos with the punctuation and capital I :), but overall very vivid.

I could feel the lifeless feeling that you were conveying. Sure, this is short but perfect for a prolougue/intro. I like it; keep it up :)

Thankyou! :] 

Yes, i thought it would be short but i also mentioned that its an "introductory" article incase anyone was wondering :) 

Thanks for the comments though, you're doing a pretty good job yourself. xo

I like it! Don't worry some may say it is to short or not enough emotion...well I think you conveyed a lot of emotion and I could feel your pain. I give you five stars, literally. Good job!
