Locked In Life

by Aeopxie | Score: 5500

I'm in jail, in the corner, in the backyard, waiting for us to be released to our cells. I never thought it would happen. My own secretary, my best friend betrayed me. They felt quite uncertain about the topic though, maybe it wasn't betrayal. As I observe my cellmates, I see one of the big guys pull out a roll of duct tape. What will he use it for? He starts approaching me. I will definitely remember this. "Hey Kyle". Says the big guy, whom I do not recall the name of. Did you think I would let you go that easily?". I open my mouth, but nothing comes out. What did he mean by "Did you think i'd let you go?", we never had a conversation before.  Come on! It's time to go back in!" says one of the guards, "There's a big storm coming!". I don't know if I was on drugs or something but I saw a giraffe in a guy's cell. It wasn't a giraffe- it was a guy, in a giraffe mask. "You're an idiot." says a guard who was walking by that giraffe guys cell. You think an emotional assembly line worker like you could escape? Not gonna happen today bud." The lights close shortly, "Bedtime is earlier today. Get good sleep cause' you'll need it." says one of the other guards. I clsoe my eyes, I fall asleep right away. I'm at our house, sitting on the couch. Dad just sitting on the table and crying. With no shame, not caring anymore. No, he wasn't abusive, he was an amazing father.... He was just weak- well maybe broken. I just sit there on the couch, holding my green plush dinosaur. George.
