The Prisoner

by Shirley McLain

 John Davis did nothing wrong. The Master of this prison had John in a five-foot by five-foot cube. When he walked, his hunched back ached because of his six-foot frame.

“Tell me what I have done to deserve this.”

For John, time didn’t begin or end. Food and water materialized when he needed it. He knows something happened, but doesn’t remember.
“Please let me out!”

“Are you Anthony Davis?” The female asked.

“Is the breakdown complete, Doctor?”

“Yes, it is.”

My poor brother. “The wreck killed more than his wife and child. He’s a prisoner of his mind.”
