Upon Waking by J. R. Park


What woke you from your sleep?
Was it the light coming through the curtains? The traffic from the street outside?
Or was it the scratching through the walls? The cries of tormented anguish from behind locked doors? The desperate clawing at the woodwork from a soul hell bent on escape?

Welcome to a place where the lucky ones die quickly.

Upon waking, the nightmare truly begins.
