The TV sounds are garbled, as the sound from the speakers in each corner of the room. The light will protect me from confusion as to what's real and what's not, I trust.

Paranoia fills me like fear of Nurse Mary's needle. Some days I want to spear her eye with an ice pick.The silent girl in the wheelchair is faking catatonia. But why? I wonder!

"You know who you are, I'm coming to kill you while you sleep." The speaker blared! "Can nobody see my fear?"

"Why is it me?" "Who is stealing my light?" "Shhh I'm awaiting nightfall!"

    I really like how the paranoia and erratic nature of the speaker is conveyed. Nice work!
