Unattainable Life

Everything is happening
In an unattainable rapid speed
I can’t keep up
My brain is burning
I slam together my eyelids
Hoping to slow
Everything down
Or just make it stop
I can’t control it anymore
My body shakes
I am going to explode
I can’t slow it down
What is happening to me?
I just want to leave
Get home to where I am safe
Just curl up in a ball
And return to my normal state
Leave this trouble behind
Be secure again
