PROMPT: Countdown

0

eternal beeping, echoing on the white walls and white floors,

hushed whispers and distant cries, disinfectant in the air,

trying so hard to keep my head above,

the ground that pulls me back down,

held hostage in this white prison,

by tubes, wires and robots,

holding on, barely surviving,

struggling to breathe,

thrashing, fighting, 

silence...
