This poem is about a very specific, common, yet not well described nor understood emotion. Inspiration is from a certain movie and perhaps personal experiance. Let me know if you figure it out ;)

Whiplash extends a gesture
My thoughts are taken
Adrenaline now replaces oxygen
However, your leech sinks in
Devouring what's left of my sanity
All that's left is an endless hallway
Nowhere to hide for me
You're behind unidentified curtains
My skin is being torn apart
Run! They shout behind the screen
My ears are blind
My sight is deaf
Feet now coarse and stuck
The rest of my body follows
Slow motion appeases the watcher
He strikes
A terrifying relief
Along drags his prey
