Is it just me?

I’ve got everything to say,

but nothing at all

I have no emotion,

yet every single one


There are millions of thoughts

running through my mind,

but it’s still blank


I am overflowing,

I am empty


Everything is noticed,

nothing is processed

I’m here,

but not presentMunch_320px


I’m slipping,

I’m climbing,

I’m gone
