Beep… The monitor sings.
Tic… Each beat of my heart amplifies
Drip… My skin sizzles
Unidentifiable voices… Acoustic shouting voices ring
A band of sounds rhythmically melodic.
Bang… A new sound makes the plastic sheet covers rustle.
My feet shift and slide, I keep my head still.
Each lead attached to my body ripped by the movement.
The monitor quieted.
The bangs stopped
The sizzling fizzled until it faded away.
Bang… There it was again, eyes blurry with blood stinging my eyes making it hard to see. A voice, a new voice
“Come with me I have a cure”
I lay limp. No longer at the hospital
I was taken away
The sounds had quieted.
Drip, Drip, Drip
