This is the first draft for the Flash Fiction competition, any and all feedback will be met with gratitude and hugs!
Is it clear that the narrator is dead in a casket? Is it clear that the casket closes when the story ends? Is there anything I should add or omit?

The moon is out, and still I feel the light thump of tears beating upon my chest. Wait, where are they going now? Why is it suddenly black?
