What's happening?

Why can't I breathe?

Pain in my jaw

Like a baby trying to teethe

The strain in my muscles

The fear in my heart

The rush of blood in my ears

My pressure is off the chart

Are you looking at me?

If you are I can't see you

Stop staring and accusing

There is nothing I can do

The tension in my tendons

Nerves buzzing like torrent seas

Pushing out thru fingers tips

Like electrically charged bees

The weight on my chest

Holding, pinning me below

Like laying in a think inky soup

Drowning in a pool, so shallow.

Can so-one help me to understand?

The feelings I have inside me

And allow the real me to stop fighting

And hold my hand to set me free

Anxiety, worry, distress, torment, unease

These are all things I fight against

In this life of malaise and apprehension

In my prison made of my own ANGST!
