Once it hits, everything stops.

Nevermind the joke I heard

And laughed at,

Nevermind the work I was

Concentrating on.

Nevermind whatever I was doing

Or could have been doing.

Because all of that goes to waste

When that same feeling kicks in.

And once it does, I suffocate.

All the thoughts race and explode and

Spin around at an unknown speed.

And I feel anger and fear and sorrow

All at one time.

But once it goes, swiftly as it came,

I go from feeling everything

To feeling absolutely nothing.

And the cycle begins again

When it has the chance.
