Panic Attack

I can feel it coming

Like an ominous cloud

Dread clings to my shadow

Trying to climb inside my mind


I can feel it

Dark tendrils slepping into my lungs

They clench

  I can't breathe


The panic slips in

I try to push it back

My attemps fail

   Drops of sorrow leak out of my eyes


The emotions are released in a flood 

The gate has been broken

I am lost in the waves

I am drowning
