I’m in a dark hole that was my room
my brother is somewhere close I can hear him coughing.
something wet and warm is dripping on my chest, and there is silver dust lit by shards of sunlight floating around me.
Everything is muffled like I’m under water but there is a ringing in my ears.
I don’t understand how this space is so tight and why I can’t get up and walk out,
the air smells of toilet.
I think I can hear voices underneath me and noises of things falling,
a light is flashing and there are strange shadows on a white wall on top of me.
There is a hand grabbing at my foot and I am screaming so very loud.
The floor falls away beneath me and the darkness becomes a brilliant white light,
men are shouting and I’m covered in oily blood.
My Mother is down on our street, she is waving her hands and screaming my name.
I don’t understand she has no clothes, and my Father is lying on the floor beside her.
My legs look twisted and there is something in my eyes
I want to go to sleep I have no idea what is happening.
Please let me go to sleep now God
