Is this confusing?

so now that I have followers (!) I can guess that they might read this. :) I just spent today writing, and that was awesome. I was wondering if these paragraphs was confusing, though. This is about a girl who tells her boyfriend that she can fly.

But all you do was stare at me weird and roll your eyes like I'm joking. You lean back in your chair and smile at me like I'm 5 years old and I want to show you my dog. "Well, let's see it."

So I ran. In that moment, every awful thing that he ever did comes rushing into my mind. Anger runs through my bare skin like a gust of wind. I can feel my head being forced up, a wave of burning hot air propelling it. I concentrate on what an awful asshole he was, until the air is so strong it sears my flesh. I can see the raw, bloody skin surfacing, until I am completely reborn, in new flesh. Somehow though, it doesn't hurt. Like her anger was some sort of protective balm, a shield against pain. 

okay, so if I told you that it was her anger that was making her fly, would that be news to you? (it's bad if it is)

No, you don't know me. But now you do!

A writer is a person for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.

Thomas Mann
German writer (1875 - 1955)

It's me, Legolas and this is my blog. You may or may not have figured that out already. Oh well, moving on now. Anyways, I just wanted to clear a few things up. No, I have not seen or read LOTR, my screen name is a nickname from my LOTR obsessed friends. Yes, I know that no one besides me says "screen name". Nor do they put slang in parentheses(Or say "nor"). This is a writing blog, because I love to do so. The thing is, putting my writing on here is really hard for me. Like almost everyone else in existence, I've been bullied and that kind of destroyed  my confidence. So here's my only rule: No "um...okay." comments. Because when you say that, you're not critiquing my writing, or laughing at my randomness.* You're saying "oh, you're weird, and therefore your writing sucks.". So if you say stuff like that, I WILL get mad and probably swear at you. The only way that you will be blocked is if you threaten me or anyone in Skullduggery Pleasant. Also, I swear. Not a lot, but if that kind of thing bothers you, don't read it. One more thing; this is not purely a writing blog. I'll also post food (vegan, cuz I don't eat dead things or products of dead things), music, and books. But yeah, I'm most obsessed with writing, so that's what this will mostly be about.
*which is all totally ok. Make fun of me, tell me you don't like my writing, tell me how you think I should change it. That's all fine, just don't be intolerant about weird people (i.e. me) on my blog. :)
