THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 360

Green

I had to drag Lindsey.
She had breathed
too much smoke.
Somehow I managed to squint
through the haze,
looking for a ray of light
that led to the outside
and not to the heart of the flames.
A loud creak
interrupted the barrage of thoughts
in my head.
One of the storage building’s walls
was falling in.
I thought I see a shimmer of green.
Trees! Outside!
With burning lungs,
I rushed toward the (imagined?) green,
pulling Lindsey with me.
We came into the light.
She was unconscious.
