10 Times As Worse - Poem by KrIsTiNa CoTTo

my pain went away with the 3 pills i swallowed.
It took it away and now i am me again.
It feels good to be alive, free and blissfull
but is this me?
i cant feel my legs. my hands are numb, and my heart is racing.
im sweating and my hands are shaking.
My eyes are watery and im dizzy.
I cant sit still and im twitching. Im itchy
and everyone is looking at me. They are all staring
Whispering about me and they are about to come for me.
im scared and im pulling at my hair. It comes out just like butter.
My skin is peeling peice by pice and now it is slipping off.
i fell to the ground and my muscles are weak. My legs i can not feel they will not alow me to move. it feels as if i am sinking into the ground. My hands i put to my face and they talk, they talk to me telling me to follow the butterflies. I look around and all i see is fairies and mermaids. I see in the sky peices of fire rumbling about ready to flame out in the world taking action.
where am i?
im scared. Am i dieing?
Why cant i move? i scream for my mother i see her but i can not reach her. She calls to me yelling my name but i cant get to her. She puts out her arm but it is to far away.
Mother i scream help me help. Im shaking im shaking i hear my name calling over and over again. I open my eyes and gasp for air. My chest feeling as if it is caving in. Im in a sweat so bad im soaked. My mother gazes at me in a scared shock. I look at her and we stare for awhile. We grab eachother and hold tightly. She asked what is going on. I told her, i wanted the pain to go away all this pain, heartbreaking adn overwheling, i just wanted it to go away. Only it is worse,10 times as worse.
