    Oh Raine. You've done it again. Such yearning in her self delusion. This is so poignant and heart wrenching. Beautifully awful.

    Very disturbing, and powerful as always, Raine. I totally understand what Sandra means by horrifyingly internal. The narrator's so alone that the word alone doesn't do it justice at all.

    There was something horrifyingly internal, in your comp entry, if that doesn't sound too daft. Rang uncomfortably true.

    Thank you Raine. My effort was completely autobiographical of course! I loved (if that's the right word) your very poignant entry. The visceral language felt tragic rather than horrifying. So many ways to be unreliable and so many consequences.

    Oh, what a sweet and sad wee boy in your comp entry! And teensy hints of darkness in there too (I think?)
