Writing Prompt #233

Ah, it is Friday the 13th. Let the superstition abound. Mwah, ha, ha.

So it only seems fitting that today’s prompt be based on Edgar Allen Poe. I love his dark, haunting prose, his troubled themes. So for today’s prompt, use the opening line to The Pit and the Pendulum:

I was sick—sick unto death with that long agony; and when they at length unbound me, and I was permitted to sit, I felt that my senses were leaving me.
