Unheard Screams

What’s wrong mommy? Where’s the music? Why aren’t you talking?

Wait! Why can’t I–gasp–breathe?

Help! Mommy! Can’t–gasp–breathe!

Something is pulling my arm! Crack

OHH, it hurts! Labored breath. Please! My leg! Writhing jerk

I can’t hear your voice Mommy! Wheeze

Where are you? Groan

Can’t–gasp–move. Choke

Can’t–gasp–feel. Convulsing

Mom–

“Get out of me.”
