Optometrist Cave Hunt

‘Hello?’ I called into the cave. The darkness swallowed my words – I didn’t even hear an echo back.          ‘Hello?’ I tried again. ‘Anyone?’          The wind rustled my jacket and I shivered… but not because of the cold, I realised.          ‘Who goes at my entrance there?’ a voice rasped from the depths …

Letter To My Son

This is a letter to my son. The boy who I feel like I abandoned two years ago when I put him into care. Please don’t judge me for my actions. I didn’t have a choice because I couldn’t look after him. He needed too much care and attention. It wasn’t his fault but it …

Act Your Age

I’m so embarrassed by my mum. I swear she acts like an eighteen-year-old (which is my age) rather than a thirty-eight-year-old (her age). I know she had me really young and missed out on all her youth whilst she was looking after me, but that’s no excuse not to act like an adult now. I …

Escaping from Raceview is a lot harder than it sounds. Everyone thinks that it’s just a normal suburb in Queensland, but it isn’t. Once you enter you can’t leave. I’m not sure if anyone else knows about this, or if everyone who lives in Raceview now just genuinely wants to stay, but I’ve noticed it. …

Parked Car

Life would be so much easier if I chose to drive places. I just had a two-hour round trip that was a mix of public transport and walking on foot, and it would’ve taken me less than half the time if I had chosen to drive. Don’t get me wrong, I can drive and I …
