Writing Prompt Wednesday – “Worthless”

vanitas by bonkspark
The world goes by at breakneck speeds and leaves us in the dust
It sticks to lashes damp with tears
Clogging mouths and throats open just for a breath of air
Heads spin and vision fluctuates in an attempt to keep steady
Frantic heartbeat, bones creaking with strain
It’s too much to keep up, and a weight settles ominously
Hands scrabbling at a chest too tight, too constricted
Heartbeats echo in booms in ringing ears
Loud loud loud
All so incredibly loud
Every sound a deafening roar
But outside of this small bubble the silence
Large and oppressive
Almost disgustingly worse
