Trapped in terror


My heart beats at million beats per minute.
Maybe it’s a total exaggeration,
But this is how I feel,
My heart racing out of control,
And I’m choking on the very air we breath.
I gasp, and try to catch a breath,
But all air does is suffocate.
I hold myself tight and rock myself,
“Everything will be fine,” I lie.
As tears run down my face,
And icy chills creep in,
I pray this feeling fades away,
But it’s one thing that never goes.
It’s one thing that stays familiar,
In this ever-changing world.
