2 Works in Don't Look Under the Bed (1999)
15 Aug 2017
Nothing burns more then regret and words that are unsaid. They are their own mysterious figures quelling us into movement and action. But what pains more is when the person we most desire, is no longer or ever was in existence to begin with. They are no more than flakes of dust lost to the wind.
Frances has contemplated her life since her brothers imaginary friend had taken her for a wild adventure, of heartbreak and discovery. But the toll for the answers was more then she was willing to pay. No, his goodbye was the dagger in her chest. A gentle kiss, and her life had changed in an instant. What she wanted was no more, there and than it was only him. Can you want what is impossible to obtain? Life goes on, and she continues to grow. Yet there's always the ache that maybe he's there within the shadows of a hand and prints of his frame along her bed. Maybe he wasn't a ghost of the past, but a figment that remains. Living with the impossible, the reality she wants and the reality she has. Can the two ever merge together. Or was it just that, a horrid dream of a troubled teen? Maybe there are answers in the nightmares of a land, and the words through forgotten years that warned, "Never return to the place under the bed!"
