Everything... Nothing...

I am walking... On n on go my feet...
Not knowing where... Not knowing how...
All by myself... Alternating darkness and Light...
No I am not stopping anywhere for my feet don't...
My mind wandering too, round n round, stuck at one point...
Its all blank... I am not thinking...
I am not seeing, not hearing, not feeling...
I just walk on and on...

There's a slight breeze that blows across my face, warm to the cold outside. Cold to the heat outside.
I do not know... I do not feel...

There's a light sunlight, in the cloudy sky, there's a fierce sun heating up the cold day...
There's a cool moonlight, lighting up my path... There's not even starlight in the shrouded dark...
And I walk on and on, on the command of my feet... On no will of anything at all...

I do not seek the shade to rest, I do not seek food for there's no appetite...
I do not feel pain or exhaustion... I am not numb for me not to feel...
I just walk on and on...

The path's cluttered with thorn, bush and flowers... I am walking in a desert, not even a mirage of an oasis...
The place is milling with people of all color, size and age... There's not a soul alive...
I am completely clad, to suit the cold... Bare naked to chill in the blasting heat...
I sweat and shiver and hug myself... I don't move a muscle, not a twitch of my finger...
I look all around me, there's no image recognition... I am not blind...
I hear all around me, still silence... I am not deaf...
I feel something, a lot of things on my skin... I am walking in void...
I taste blood, stench, sweet, sour, bitter blood... It's completely empty, nothing around...

I just walk on and on... Not knowing why...
All by myself... My mind wandering, fixed at one point...
