DAY ONE

Shut the door!

SLAM!

Fall back against it.

Exhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaale.

Relax.

Pause.

Wait.

Confusion.

This is a strange place.

Where am I?

My home.

Be calm.

Don’t think.

Just Listen.

What is that?

Silence.

Never heard it.

The silence is deafening.

What is that?

It’s getting louder

LOUDER

RIIIINNNNNNNGGGGGIIIINNNNNNGGGGGG!!!

IT’S TOO LOUD!

STOP!

Silence again.

Be Still.

Something isn’t right.

Open your eyes.

See.

Lift your head.

Look around.

Smell.

I smell flowers.

Like a funeral.

Something died.

Nothing.

I feel nothing.

Be still.

Numb.

It’s ok.

It will be ok.

Breath in.

What time is it?

It’s dark outside.

It’s early.

I’m exhausted.

Eyes swollen.

Can’t think.

Brain is tired.

Bones hurt.

Chest sore.

Heart beats.

What for?

Swallow heart.

Exhale.

Knees weak.

Find your balance.

They start to tremble.

Go lay down.

Try to sleep.

Collapse.

Face first.

I can’t sleep.

Stop thinking

I can’t sleep.

Stop thinking

I can’t sleep.
Stop thinking

I can’t sleep.
Stop thinking

I can’t sleep.
Stop thinking

I can’t sleep.
Stop thinking

Lay on my side.

Curl up.

Can’t sleep.
Thinking.

Can’t sleep.
Thinking.

Can’t sleep.
Thinking.

GO TO SLEEP!

Turn over.

Staring.

There are shadows.

All around.

They are staring.

Watching me.

Staring back.

Change focus.

Staring.

Hoping.

Where’s my phone?

It’s not going to ring.

Put it down.

GO TO SLEEP!
