lost in the forest

lost in the forest

August, 2018

Sprinting through the forest

    The crunching leaves echo all around me

I know it’s near

    Looking back will only slow me down

        But as the fear that it’s closer than the echo’s relay takes over

I look back

It’s nowhere to be found

 

Suddenly I see nothing except for an infinite amount of darkness

    Nothing

        All around me

            Black

Unable to comprehend if I am surrounded by nothing or something

    Or both all at once

 

I scream

    But no noise comes out

 

I cry

    But no tears are shed

 

I run

    But get nowhere

 

I am

    But I am not

 

I close my eyes

    But they stay open

 

Who trapped me in this eternal nothingness?

Where is it?

Where did it go?

Is it here?

Where am I?

 

I sit

I admit defeat and stare blankly ahead

Nothingness had won.
