Have you ever found yourself lost in thought, staring at a blank space.
You’re sitting in an area crowded with people, and yet you’re alone.
Your eyes open and yet you can’t see them, you hear them talk and yet you’re deaf, you try to speak and yet you’re unheard, you try to move and yet you’re numb.
It’s like sleep paralysis and here you are, fully awake. It scares you and yet it doesn’t.
You’re still here and yet you try to come back. Just to see again, to move again, to hear and to be heard.
But just when you are lost in thought you realize that you forgot what you were thinking, and so trying to remember your thoughts you sink further into a series of unfathomed thoughts, a bottomless pit, a never ending abyss…..
And yet it ends!
You are so lost and yet you find yourself!
