I can now fly

(Just a little poem/short story thing that I wrote)

I can now fly

Dark.
Spinning.
Ragged breathing.
Falling.
Thud.

I open my eyes. I can hear the beeping of the machine. Then I see it. I’m in the hospital. There’s an IV in my right hand. I blink rapidly. My breathing is shallow almost forced really. My body aches all over. I look down at my legs, they are in casts under a flimsy sheet. I take a deeper breath but instantly regret it. My chest feels like it’s on fire. All I can hear is the steady beeping and muffled speech outside the door at the far side of my room. I am so tired but every time I close my eyes the memories come rushing in.

(flashback)
-yelling-
“YOU NEVER CARED ABOUT ME?!”
-slam-
-crash-
Lamp on the ground
-sobbing-
-yelling again-
“YOU CHEATED ON ME?! HOW COULD YOU?!”
-slap-
-running-
-going up stairs-
Roof.
Dark.
Spinning.
Ragged breathing.
Falling.
Thud.
(Flashback ended)

I could still feel the air rushing past me…the ground closer and closer with each passing second. The tears being flung upwards as my numb body plunged down. I shake my head. I don’t understand. How am I here?

door opens
mum walks in
places flowers on the table
walks out

It’s now been 3 weeks since I jumped. I’m still in the same bed. Only getting up if I have to. Mum hasn’t come back. Doubt she will. Best friend came. She tried talking with me but ended up leaving in tears. I stare at the clock. Wishing that I wasn’t here.

Nurse came in and said I was moving rooms. Just down the hall though. I share this room with a boy. Looks like he broke his arm.

I’ve lost count of how long I’ve been here but I haven’t talked at all. Doctor and dad came today to chat. They said that I could go home.

Packing
Shuffling
Car door shuts
Driving

We arrive home. Brother is on the Xbox in his room. I go to mine and curl up on the bed. I fall asleep. I dream.

Falling.

I open my eyes. I can’t so this anymore. I get up.

Bathroom
Open
Pour them down
Drink water
Sink to the floor

I close my eyes and find peace

I now can fly
