Drowning with Open Eyes

Everyone watches but


no one sees.

what is happening to me?

Something sits on my chest but

I see nothing there.

Why can't I breath?

It comes from nowhere.

The shadow grows in my eyes.

Can you see me?


No I'm not sad why do you ask?

I have no feeling.



Alone and surrounded.

They say I don't care.

But they don't know me.


I am here. I am watching.

I see

Silent observation
