By Hinemoana Douglas

I search,run,hide,escape everything to get out.What is this place? Alone in the forest where somehow the trees were moving in.Running,avoiding the cool grey trunks.How did i get here? Where do i go now? Questions burning in my head.I stop at intersections of the gravel paths and hear nothing but my own panting and the rumor between the trees,whispering,questioning.Mid-day,the rays of the sun flashing on and off my body as i ran.A few weeks here and i'd go crazy.Light!Run... closer,closer.Too excited,my body flinged over the edge.Was i flying?No. A cliff ,i knew it.I knew it was the end slowly falling to land painfully but silently...
In a bed?
