Cold. 

Everything sounds muffled underwater. Are you speaking to me? I hear your voice but I'm not sure.

Faces. 

Distant voices Laughing joking talking Happy children Basketball tetherball dodgeball Wide smiles Bright teeth Glass eyes Everyone Time drags on- days a blur Weeks months years Hello,  how are you Stranger friend enemy Can't speak Can't see Don't talk Don't listen I'm here Not alive I'm living Unawake

Hot.

Nowhere.

I was nothing more than a rotting wooden raft in the middle of the thrashing unforgiving sea. Pulling me in every direction, when all I wanted was to be nowhere..
