    It was a dark ,stormy night the haze was deep,moonless,lonely.The night was oblivious.Isolated.I was the only thing around.I don’t know if the people hid from me or their nightmares.It Seemed like the terrain had disappeared.Maybe I was cursed or I’m just a hidden Soul in a empty body.Sticks swished from side to side.I felt life less. I am?is there?just maybe?there might be?I ask myself am I the only one-the only monster out there?

    Wow! Well done to you both. You’ve created such atmosphere and tension. I’m gripped! Write more – I want to know if ‘you are the only one’.

    Searching for life, it’s blanc I’ve traveled in my mind but in the real world I have not moved waiting for days to pass and me to leave but I’m just alone I don’t think I can do anything I’m just gone forever my life my existence has gone it’s all isolated.
