I feel like I'm drowning.
No, not quite.
I feel like I've landed on the pool cover, and I'm sinking, and it's folding in around me. It's suctioning my arms to my sides, and I can't move right, and I can't reach anything, and no one can hear me.
I feel like there's a hand closing over my throat and squeezing.
I can't breath and I don't know why, because there is no pool, and no hand.
The sun shines, glorious. The birds loop overhead. Everything ticks along, just like normal.
The fire alarm in my head is going off again.
