non existence

i had a thought last night
it was more of a non thought
a feeling
a whisper i didnt reach into
i felt
for a moment, that i didnt exist
and thats not strange; i feel that a lot
sorta like, empty, acting
but last night
i felt, for a moment
like everything, everything about me and my reality and humanity and the reality of human existence and just everything
as we know it
was a badly woven story
not real
transparent
as if millions of years of history hadnt happened and the future was a concept
and everything was somehow flat
it was like the opposite of that overwhelming feeling
when you remember how long the past is and how detailed everyones lives are and how big reality is
it was like
everything feeling small, non-existent, empty
so small
it was strange
and now i have no motivation to do school work.

    This is such a brilliant poem and you put the idea into words super well - even though I would've not been able to do it in a million years haha - I love how the last line kind of grounds the poem in reality in an almost paradoxical way

    Wow! This was very impactful and I especially love the beginning when you say "I had a thought but it wasn't a thought, it was a non-feeling"- that was so poetic. And the everything was flat is soooo powerful! And hahaha I love the ending because it's so relatable- honestly, I will think of the most obscure things to avoid doing homework XD

    Super relatable, and I love how you described such an abstract idea so clearly. Also, love the last line :)
