I awoke with my head submerged in water,
ears blocked, the world locked out of my perception.
There’s a knock on a window somewhere but I can’t tell which one
this muffled echo is coming from – a pathetic attempt at a sound.
I’ve lost touch with my senses, like they’re running out of battery,
confused with each other, I can feel sounds but not hear them.
I know my footsteps should make a thump, thump, thump,
but they are just a vague imitation reverberating in my skull.
Amongst obscured thoughts and hazy eyes,
I’m lost in a world I don’t belong in,
How much longer until I surface?
