can you feel it choking you and
are you drowning drowning drowning because
i can't breathe the panic's
what are you supposed to do when you have
no idea what's gone wrong,
what do you do when hysteria is taking over?
all i can sense is the tightness in my chest and the
racing pounding of my heart and i
can feel the walls closing in,
the claustrophobia of pressure seizing my heart,
and all i want to do is run far away
but my feet are planted
and the world is dangerous beyond these safe walls so
i stay and swallow it down
under the guise of thought.
