I wake up
Gasping for air
As if I haven’t
Been breathing

I look around
I’m in class
I must have
Fallen asleep

I try to talk
No one hears me
No one sees me

I yell and move around
No one hears me
No one sees me

I feel a dripping on my head
I catch a drop in my hand
It’s water
There must be a leak

I look up
Blood starts to drip
A drop fall into my eye
I scream in pain
No one hears me
No one sees me

I’m blinded
From the blood
But I look up
And will my one good eye
I see a knife just as
It comes falling down
And plugs into me

I scream and cry
No one hears me
No one sees me
As I slowly die.

“I'd rather see a sermon than hear one any day; I'd rather one should walk with me than merely tell the way: The eye's a better pupil and more willing than the ear, fine counsel is confusing, but example's always clear.” -Edgar Guest

This one was scary, I kind of liked it. I actually began to feel a physical reaction of fear twist in my chest as I read the part "I feel a dripping on my head," (i know, of all the times to start being afraid, right?) And my eyes burned as I read the last stanza.
