Clocks ticking

The only sound you can hear

Pencil scratches the paper faster by the second

It should be pushing you forward

But it’s pulling you back


In a room full of people but you feel alone

You’re running out of time

It’s squeezing your lungs


Can’t breathe

Can’t think

Your mind is like a blank canvas

Trying to focus

Trying to calm down

Don’t know how to finish


You’re underwater

Can’t hear

Can’t see

It’s finally pushing you to the end

You break the surface

You can breathe

You are calm
