vomiting in the urgent care parking lot
wires, working, white noise
a hospital never sleeps, never rests
i cannot move without being blinded
my stomach is unable to handle anything
the iv attached to my arm is my lifeline
i wish i could remember normal

    This sounds like a really hard experience. I'm glad you have such honesty and are unafraid to share this with the rest of us.

    Replying: Thanks for the reminder. I'll try my best, but I have a major headache and a lot to do. If it isn't submitted by the deadline, I'll be entering the next competition you host. Whether I know what to do with the prompts or not. I think I need to take care of myself first though. I think.

    Anyway, I'll let you get on with your judging. Again. Sorry if the piece doesn't show. I'll try my best.

    This is amazing. The shortness of it feels raw. I love it so much
