Sorry for the inconvenience

Nightmares


By Alexis Ramirez

 

Its 12 in the morning and it’s really cold.
I wish I was outside.
But instead I’m inside and I’ve been waiting for hours.
Then again, all hospitals are like that.
It’s really bright and really quiet,
Aside from the doors opening and closing.
The floor is filled with white squares
with the occasional blue squares scattered randomly.
I’m a mess.
My nose is bright red.
My eyes feel dry and heavy.
And then boom the wait is over.
The Doctor declares a time of death.
My knees give out and I hyperventilate.
My head feels weak and I just fall to the floor.
My heart dropped,
the way it does on huge roller-coasters.
And all the crying I did in anticipation,
is gone.
