Red river The darkness slowly but certainty is creeping up behind me carrying that thing, that monster that most have ascended from the fires of hell, slivering through the air like a worm slivers through the ground. For a strange reason be carried by red balloons. I couldn’t think of anything just run, run and don’t look back the chase had to stop at some point right? “Don’t run from this” “you caused this, never being able to stop” a voice I often hear in my mind it also comes with visions or creations of another world, one where everything is horrifying I always have to tell myself its a creation of my own imagination and my life is good and no monster is constantly hunting me down. It’s amazing what pops in your mind when you’re alone such thing could only happen there in my mind.

First I think I should tell a bit about myself, my name is Robert Jones I am well was computer programmer, mostly my friends would refer to me as a stubborn man who runs from his problems and who never knows when to stop I however would describe myself as a jolly fellow who knows how to have fun a likes a drink but the thing is I can never stop once I start. In fact I was on I think my tenth glass of wine at my home the next thing I knew I woke up here.

Now here I am, running, sneaking and hiding from that thing that I can never get ahead of it. The more I seem to drown my sorrows in the red river I found not far from where I arrived it gets faster and faster every time. The longer I go without it slows down giving me chance to run. “Fast, faster and even faster I most keep going” I keep saying to myself. “Don’t run from this” “you caused this, never being able to stop” faster and louder the voice now sounding full of rage and unrequited anger it will I fear never leave me, It runs through my head never ending, never quiet.

It keeps wondering am I just insane or is reality?
