Good Vibrations

My phone vibrates on the nightstand beside my bed. I don't budge to answer it. I want to, but I can't. I know my friends just want to hang out or play some games. But, I'm not feeling it. I'm not feeling much these days. Mostly anger, a little sadness. The phone starts to vibrate again. I really want to pick it up, but I can't.

Third time is the charm, I reach for the phone, but it's too heavy to lift. Maybe it's for the best. I don't want to drag my problems into whatever fun is being had. I rollover into my favorite position and close my eyes. I just wait for sleep to come. I'm not sure it will or not. The phone rings again, taking away any chances I had of sleep.

This time I make the effort to grab it and lift it. I just turn it off. They don't want the problems I inevitably bring them. I'm just saving them the trouble. Still the phone rings again. How the fuck is this thing ringing? It's turned off. I fling it across the room as hard as I can. I heart it smash against a wall.

Yet it vibrates still, this time a blue light fills the room. The vibrating doesn't stop and the glow only grows brighter. I pull myself from the bed and make my way over to the phone.

"Are you tired of being sad," a simple message on the screen with options for yes or no.

Everything bone in my body told me I was dreaming. Still I make my choice. I feel the phone instantly burn my finger and I pull back. My entire body starts to burn I try to run. Too late, I'm being sucked into the phone. This is unreal. I have to be dreaming. I try to punch myself and wake up but my arm is gone.

The whole world goes blue and I loose myself. My thoughts it's all gone. When I awaken there's nothing around me. Just darkness, except above me. The ceiling of my room is still there, but it seems so far away. I'm not in my room anymore. I'm inside the phone. What the hell is going on here?
