I try to hold the whole universe in my head. And it hurts. Waves of thoughts wash over my head, and I stumble and fall. I get swallowed by them

I once lived in an old-folks home that was a WWII barracks prior to its conversion. The building itself, to those who are believers, would obviously have some paranormal activity. These were buildings made entirely of cement with perhaps a few dozen units per floor. The floors were covered in a thin layer of unpadded carpet and staircases were walled off with the cement at the top to make way for senior housing.
Underneath the buildings were basements filled with abandoned items from former deceased residents. There would be sales there occasionally like any thrift shop yet the environment made it feel somewhat like a modern tomb.
The cemented stair cases, elderly people, and objects of the dead definitely created a sense of paranormal phenomenon, though it could also be hysteria, I doubt that a place like that could exist without being haunted.
There were other buildings near the property, many of them abandoned, decrepit, and poorly observed by local national guard. The creepiest building is the abandoned hospital. For whatever reason, the combination of those two words frightens me. The abuse once could see in the structure added to this; walls could be seen through broken windows where others made their way in before and tagged the walls with whatever they wanted. Names, creepy messages, a pentagram, why not? It even had a door on the second story that looked like it belonged to a now long gone balcony. Rush through it from inside and you're dead.
The vandalism isn't what makes it so creepy though. All abandoned places have a shared sense of isolation and impose void like feelings when discovered. This place was creepy to me in particular because it was a wartime hospital. You could almost feel the anguish of dying troops there. It was as if you could stare into any part of the building and feel like someone was staring right back.
Perhaps one of the worst details of this place is the flooding on the lower levels. There were moats, so to speak, which were created by rainfall and these walled pits that housed basement windows. There must have been at least 4 feet of water in these pits, some of them overflowing into certain basement windows. It was obvious people had used these spaces to climb into the hospital, which seemed insane to be as there was blatantly debris hidden in the water.
I never dared go inside. I don't feel like dying in a structural collapse in one of the creepiest building's I've ever known.
If there was ever a place that was haunted, I swear it's that place.
