Things are getting too surreal

Sitting, watching everyone around me

All the sound starts to disappear

Three girls jump rope next to me

1,... 2,... 3,... 4,...

The loud counting turns into tiny whispers

Until there's no sound at all

A dog is opening his mouth at me

A soundless bark

All the color smears

The world is a watercolor painting

My heart beat rings through my ears

thump, thump! thump, thump!

I hear the barking now

The girls continue their song

5,... 6,... 7,... 8,...

The color fizes back into place
