It hits like a bullet. Caught off guard, Triggered by the circumstance, Fuelled with the negative thought, Your mind starts to race and all sense is blur.
It hits like a tsunami. One second you could breathe, The next your nostrils and mouth is forced shut, Your insides are burning, You’re crashing against sorrows And there’s oh so much desperation For the need to simply Breathe.
When the feeling is this intense You won’t know what hit you.
