It began when I awoke to the unpleasant sensation of a prickling within my right ear. It felt as though something was scritch-scratching away upon my eardrum like a pen upon paper. I tried to clear it, but the sensation would not cease. The longer it continued, the more I was certain that some living thing was burrowing into me, scritch-scratching away at my flesh and my sanity.
The doctor who checked said my inner ear is inflamed, but clear. No foreign object, no thing, is there.
I should be reassured. The prickling has subsided to no more than an occasional flicker of a whisper. I twitch now and then.
The dreams, though. What do I do about the dreams? The damp earth between my sheets? The soil between my teeth?
Sorry, what was I saying? Oh, I remember now. Yes. I was just asking: Would you like to see my garden?
