    She twisted the scrappy piece of cloth around and around her grimy fingers agitatedly. The rag was a testament to her old life, the last link to the days of instant coffee and proper beds. Kate had almost forgotten the significance of the material; only the recollection that the scrap of blanket on...

    Fingertips skim the pages of books written with the sole purpose to stand on a bookshelf forever and never be read. Feet chase the sounds of paper fluttering, up and down winding stairs and around and around circular shelves. The scent of paper moulding and coffee brewing breezes up people’s noses...

    I follow the footprints of those who lived before me. My life isn’t my own. It’s just a version of a story that has been told countless of times already. Every part of me is a piece of someone or something else. Originality is a foreign concept to me except when I’m with him. He makes me diffe...

    Streetlights wink in the distance as she shuffles down the cracked asphalt of neighbourhoods gone wrong. Her lips are blue with the cold and her frosty, impenetrable eyes are glued to the ground as she dances her way around the puddles left from the earlier shower of bitter rain. Her hands are stuff...

    You slip into the classroom, back hunched, your eyes slits that take in everything around you. You don’t miss a single detail. You drop into a seat and scribble meaningless words in your tattered diary. You forget where you are. The teacher drones on about positive correlation between someth...

    Do you know me? Because I know you. Well I don’t really know you, but I know of your existence. Or actually I’m more guessing, not knowing. I think we don’t know anything for certain. Everything is guesswork. Maybe you know things for sure. I wonder what that would be like. Som...

    I’m having second thoughts. No, scratch that I’m having third or possibly even fourth thoughts. I twist the rubber ring round and round my middle finger, leaving red chafe marks on my otherwise colourless skin. I wish I’d had time to go get a nice suntan because now my skin is just…what’s ...

    My feet are enveloped in burning hot sand. I can feel the heat, but somehow I feel no pain. The sun filters through the clouds as I take a tentative step into the sea. Water laps around my ankles and pulls me deeper. I feel like I’m floating, like I’m weightless. The current swirls me around and...

    Silence fills the entire house, a silence so complete that sound no longer seems like a possibility. Standing in the doorway, he is almost afraid to take a step in. The house is dead too, he thinks to himself. When he finally walks into the house, the creaking beneath his feet somehow adds to the in...

    One day I decided I wanted to be remembered. So I filled a book with all the things I’ve done and all the things I want to do, but may never get to. But it wasn’t enough. So I made several copies and gave them to my family and friends. My mum cried. And then she took a quick photo of t...

    “I think, if the world was a book it would be written in red ink,” she murmurs bitterly, “Red for anger, red for pain. Red for love, both mutual and unrequited. Red for the blood spilt by the hands of others and by our own. Red for…” Here she trails off and puts her head in her hands. The ...

    The band played their tune with precision and expertise, but more than half of the school weren’t listening. The drums were beating out a steady rhythm, the flutes sang their bittersweet melody and the saxophones howled at the indifferent crowd. Unconsciously, my eyes found him. Back left-hand cor...

    He burst the bubble I’ve been living in for the past eleven years. With his razor sharp fingernails he cut a slit in my cocoon and I felt the cold, harsh air of reality whip through me. I’ve been oblivious to the truth, unaware of the facts. Somehow I was powerless to see what was happening unti...

    She folded her hands neatly in her lap and waited patiently for his arrival. A glance at her watch; 20 minutes late. She thought of all the reasonable excuses he might have for being late. Maybe the traffic is really bad, she thought, refusing to acknowledge the empty streets outside. Maybe his moth...

    The window fogs up with my breath as I gaze out at the rolling fields of sun kissed dandelions. I draw little hearts with my finger like a kid all over the foggy window, my thoughts on you. Aren’t they always? I recite the words you said that day in my head over and over. ‘I don’t think thi...

    To boldly go. To go confidently. To go with bravery. The words stuck in her mouth like a piece of gum and she couldn’t seem to figure them out. They built up and up until she exploded with frustration. Throwing her notebook on the ground, she curled up in a ball and blasted out her music. Downs...

    The shouts and the screams, the slaps and the bangs, the buzz of the TV and the singing of the kettle all cram their way into Margaret’s room until she is overcome by noise. Escape, is all she can think. Out the window, down the drainpipe she’s climbed countless of times before and off she goes....

    I was never the girl who had a certain type. Or had a list of qualities a guy had to have before I dated them. I never used to check out guys on Facebook or call from an unknown phone, pretending it was a wrong number, just to hear their voice. All of this changed the day I spilled my coffee all ove...

    I take a deep breath mentally bracing myself for the fall and then I dive into the water. As soon as I hit the water I start propelling myself forward. My arms and legs cut through the water powerfully and I reach the other side in what I hope will be a good time. My swimming coach stops the stopwat...

    The sky was a display of mottled blue and purple bruises. Snowflakes clung to my eyelashes and dusted my raven black hair as the winter snow fell. I wrapped my oversized jumper tighter around myself, an attempt to keep out the biting wind. I gaze around at the rubble and crumbling skyscrapers that i...

    I am a milky white chocolate, plain and overlooked, but dig a little deeper and you’ll find I’m rich with taste and zest. I’m in the corner of the selection box next to my dark chocolate friend who’s confident and perky, just waiting to be found. Her ideas flow, from marzipan centres to coco...

    Her breathing is ragged with the strain of carrying the irregularly shaped bag. She forces herself not to think about the contents of the bag, because if she does she won't be able to keep going. Her face his damp with sweat and tears, even a little blood, dry and crusty. With every step he...
