I lay silently on my cold white bed
Oceans swallowing me ‘till I can’t breathe
No one notices how much I have bled
The hot blood once red turns cold as it seethes
I hear a constant knocking at the door
I dare not open it, I still lay here
But the person knocking begins to roar
I cover my ears until I can’t hear
I hear the door peel away piece by piece
I can see his pitch black eyes peeking through
And I can see him, the ripping has ceased
All I see is black; an unwanted hue
A silent scream, I have nowhere to run.
The door is down, the pads and locks undone.
