It can come on slow and it can come on fast
Sometimes you’d never know it’s even happening
Your palms start to sweat and your heart is about to burst
You’ll try and calm yourself down but your mind won’t stop rattling
You’ll never know what triggers it
It can be anything or nothing at all
The simplest things will set you off
And then it’s your composure that will start to fall
Do the others notice it too?
How you stay awake at night in fear of your dreams
Do they care really?
How your tears come in infinite streams
It is creeping up on you know
Just as you read these lines
You’re not alone in what you feel dear reader
There are so many of us that show the signs
