Why is it that when I'm surrounded by the most people,
I feel the most alone?
That when I think of the billions of other
I feel a pit in my stomach,
swallowing me up from the inside,
overpowering me with all-consuming darkness.
How can a single grain of sand
when it looks the same
as billions of others?
I stare at my footprints in the sand
watching the waves rise,
struck with the sudden sinking realizing,
I've witnessed the world after my death.
