Victoria, Australia / Student in Year 12
I am a seventeen year old from Victoria who writes poems and stories, draws the world as I see it and believes in magic


I am sitting on my bed in my room but everything has been shifted 90 degrees and my bedspread is now a thick woven blanket instead of my floral one. A boy is kissing me and I put my hands in his hair. I pull away and walk to the bathroom and turn on the shower. It steams as I step inside. The steam creates a thick hazy curtain. As it evaporates it becomes apparent my bathroom wall has disappeared. I can see straight through to my bedroom. The boy is still sitting on my bed. He smiles at me. I like him a lot. He picks up his phone and walks away. I can hear a distant conversation with someone. He is talking about me. I sigh and think "isn't it amazing when your reality feels like a dream because its everything you wanted." I then wake and shake my head at the irony.
