It seemed like the world was fading away;
the sun and the sky were covered with clouds
and the whole earth was turning gray.
All the voices sounded somewhat muffled,
and none of the words seemed to rhyme,
it was not like the people disappeared
but I still felt like the only one there.
I might have had a cold too, my nose stuffed,
because even food began to taste bland
like I had a plastic bag on my tongue.
Everything felt just outside of my reach
and I forgot what it was like to touch.
But somewhere deep inside myself I knew
the only one fading away was me.
