Panic: A Poem

I felt it breathing down my neck

One thought

One thought

Another thought

Another thought

It's creeping up my spine

One thought

Another thought

It blocks out reason from my ears

One thought

One thought

It's pushing through my teeth

It's fighting at my lips

Onethought anotherthought

It's clenching at my jaw

Onanother thought

It's pressuring my eyelids

Onnotherthought

It's pulling the hairs in my nose

Notherthought

It's closing my throat

It's boiling my blood

It's taking over

Taking over

But

Outside, I am still

I'm in my bed

I'm Mary

I'm–one thought–Mary

I'm–one thought, spine twitches–Mary

I'm

Breathe

Mary

Breathe

In

I'm

Breathe

Out

Mary

I'm

Breathe

In

Breathe

Out

In control
