I was flying, I was that close to the light at the end of the tunnel.
Hey! wait a minute, where am I? why is everyone crying?
Is she crying too? Yes! my wife is crying too, All these years I tried to escape from you? I’m sorry!
Oh I can’t see her crying, oh my heart is breaking!
Needles?? No!!! don’t inject on my chest NOOOOO!!!
I woke up.
I was flying I said to her.
She said ‘I’ll kill you if you scare me next time’
That look on my eyes, feeling stuck with her, again.
