Mental Breakdown

By Christian Wills


Anxious and afraid was written on their face. Every second he worried about what would happen next, like a squirrel looking in every direction. Yet, she wanted the attention. He wanted the newfound detriment that she possessed. He couldn’t shake it. Bones and body trembled back and forth like your grandmother’s favorite rocking chair. Now she’s lost in a cycle. On the edge of no return.


He cashed out a check too big for their own good. Where to next...the clinic, hospital, bedroom floor. He can’t take it...but she thinks they can. Unless he acts fast, there’s not much she can do. Time is running away, slipping out of your control. Your body is out of control. Your mind is out of control. 


What will you do now?
