Panic Attack

Stomach turning within itself.

Irregular breaths escape in rapid succession;

no… CHOKED out!

Clenching of chest as attempt in soothing;

you just want to breathe normally.

Oh… yes you do!

Yet, another violent breathe departs.

Clenching yourself tighter.

Hazy feelings.

World seemingly collapses,

while watching trapped in your own somber mind.

Fists balling up and teeth grinding.

It will pass.


…It does!

Breathing regulates;

exhaustion and confusion set in.

You’re okay.

Life goes on.
