AN IMPRISONED MAN IS HAUNTED BY HIS DEMONS

IT'S COLD OUTSIDE; VERY COLD, THE GROUND FROZEN WITH SNOW AND ICE.
BUT YOU AREN'T COLD; YOU ARE LYING IN YOUR LOUSY LITTLE LICE-INFESTED BUNK STARING OUT AT THE MOON, DAYDREAMING ABOUT LAYING ON SOME WHITE SANDY BEACH SOMEWHERE SIPPING FANCY DRINKS AND WATCHING SEMI-NAKED GIRLS FROLICKING ABOUT ON THE SAND.

THEN THE MOON CHANGES; IT'S FACE BECOMES A DISEASED, PIMPLED MASK OF HORROR. IT'S BLACK, BEADY EYES, IT'S THIN LIPPED MOUTH THAT LOOKS AS THOUGH IT'S BLEEDING.
YOU SUDDENLY THINK OF BABY-KILLERS; OF GRAVEYARD RATS AND ROBBING GRAVES AND CRADLES.
aND YOU ALSO WANT THAT DRINK; THAT DEMON ALCOHOL, THAT STUFF THAT MAKES YOU CRAZY, MAKES YOU DO THINGS YOU WOULD NEVER NORMALLY DO OTHERWISE.

nOW YOU ARE COLD; COLDER THAN MINER'S ASS IN DECEMBER. YOU REACH UP AT THE MOON, THINKING THAT IF YOU CAN JUST REACH UP FAR ENOUGH.....
.....BUT THEN YOU LAY BACK ON YOUR BUNK AGAIN, AND SAY TO YOURSELF; 'i'M NOT GOING TO THINK ABOUT DEAD BABIES AND WHISKEY ANYMORE!!'
bUT YOU DO ANYWAY, THE HORRIBLE IMAGES FLASHING BACK AND FORTH THROUGH YOUR MIND LIKE A VHS TAPE SET ON FAST-FORWARD.
'I'M GOING TO SLEEP,' YOU SAY, ROLLING OVER, YOUR BACK TO THE MOON. BUT YOU DON'T GO TO SLEEP; THE DEATH THROES OF THE FALLEN INNOCENT SCREAM YOUR NAME.
'DADDY!' THEY SCREAM.
