Panic attack


I'm dizzy

my head is too light

i lean against the wall to stabilize my wobbly legs


the wall starts warping

and the floor starts warping 

and my brain starts warping


lungs: frozen

legs: frozen

hands: frozen


threat: growing

pain: growing 

room: shrinking


he takes a step

I might collapse

I can't do that


she steps in

not alone anymore

everything's fine


pretend I can breathe

pretend not to shake

pretend to feel safe


everything's fine

she's here now

everythings fine

I'm just too sensitive

everything's fine
