It is when your heart beats like a hammer against your chest
It beats unruly, fast paced rhythms
Like you’re crashing from too much caffeine.
And the shaking,
Oh the tremors
No blanket can comfort your body’s involuntary shivering
The whimpering, crying, trying to——*breathes sharply*
Grasp the sheets
To keep the room from spinning.
Teeth clattering, head thumping
Runs to the bathroom,
Clutching the porcelain waiting to feel a little less queasy
But you just sit there
While your body slowly slips
Into a dark room
Where nothing but your irrational fears
Come to greet you.
