Deep into the cyclone I am plunged,
The waves that so often crash around me
oommFor now are silenced.
In eerie quietude I am forever folding inward.
Down through thoughts unclear,
My body a callus shell.
The world outside looks so unreal,
When viewed from deep within,
As if one strong tap could shatter all,
And bring the whole screen crashing down.
oommThen time speeds up and sound creeps in,
As from the cyclone I emerge,
Standing still and silent,
While the street it looks perturbed.
