This is what I've come to feel most times. It's my first shot at poetry, so forgive me if it's awful.

It feels like the world has stopped spinning.
Crickets stopped chirping.
Sun stopped rising.
Music stopped playing.
People stopped breathing.

I blink.
Why am I still here?

There is no light,
No colors,
No sound,
No smell,
No life.

I close my eyes. Tight.
Where am I?

Memories flash by.
Black lids as a background.
But it doesn't matter.
Nothing does anymore.

I take a deep breath.
And scream.

It's all too much.
Surrounding me.
Enclosing me.
Suffocating me.

My screaming stops.
And I wish,
Everything else would, too.
