You walk into an empty room.

As empty as the body inside it.

All that remains in the room is

Air... Space... Time... Walls.

The walls stay there, completely still

But they surround you

Not one escape can be found.


The door to your hollow life closes

It says to you,

"Stay, where you are... you're not leaving

You entered, and now you will not leave until..."



What does until lead to now?

Now the time wastes;

Years into Months

Months into Weeks

Weeks into Days

Days into Hours

Hours into Minutes

Minutes into Seconds

Seconds into nothing
