My eyes are closed,

I’m sitting-

laying-

On a hard something

Beep.

Beep.

I dare a peek

Blinding! Bright! Lights!

I gain focus,

Six of my friends-

some acquaintances, really-

Gaggled around me.

Sobs,

Heaving,

choking,

drowning,

Sobs fill the air around me.

I can’t breathe-

I’m going to die-

can’t-

I’m crying

-suddenly.

My most well-known friend in the group-

Bailey-

wraps her arms around me.

I hug her back.

Look down,

Tubes,

Fluids,

Beep. Beep.

In the back of my mind,

I know-

Beep. Beep.

Something’s wrong-

Beep. Beep.

But I can’t-

Beep.

Figure-

Beep.

“It’ll be okay”

Click.

And everything’s dark,

Quiet,

again.

This is based on a nightmare I keep having. I’ve had it twice already. It feels like the worst nightmare I’ve ever had. I hope it doesn’t mean anything.
