I stood still.
Nothing awaits me.
Not you.
Not me either.
The footprints in sand -
Which pair is mine?
I am going in circles
Will this ever end?

I could hear his voice,
so near and yet so far.
I cried out loud.
A hungry silence ate my words.
I reached out;
Darkness enveloped me.

I tried to escape within,
now I am lost again.
The walls are closing in.
How do I escape from myself?

I stood still.
Death awaits me.

Thank you, for allowing me to see how I feel.
