All I could see was a blur of blue flashing lights. “Put your hands up!” I hesitantly raised … More Nowhere
My tears are welling up inside me. But, I can’t cry. I’m not a baby. I’m in a classroom. In secondary. I feel like crying. But I can’t. I stare up at the sky outside, wishing I wasn’t here. I look down at the floor, praying, but it doesn’t swallow me up. Of course it … More Love
