Prompt: Write about feeling lost in a crowd

We get carried-away when we are part of a crowd; sometimes physically, but almost always mentally. We are no longer ourselves, but part of something bigger. Our emotions feed off one-another, growing into a huge, looming monster we cannot control. One person is rational- a crowd of people is a swarm of beasts. We do what we would normally find unthinkable. We say things we would never actually say. We destroy things we would never destroy.

The worst part about the crowd mentality, the worst part of this beast, is its ability to swallow up our humanity.
