we babbled incessantly
preoccupied with mundane tasks
that no longer interested us

caught in a whirlwind of
docile expressions, pacing
from cubicle after cubicle

how lovely it was to be numb.

we woke up suddenly
with a deep fear in our stomachs
muscles fighting bones

we were longing to crawl out
of our own skin, unsatisfied
with anything and everything.

how torturous it was to be alive.
