It hangs in the air. It. a poisonous cloud heavy, smoke like, choking. I can't. It is dark, It has captured. It fills my head fear, stop, numb. I can’t think. It has wrapped up my tongue, controls my speech slurred, empty, wordless. I can’t speak. It is in my eyes, Dark, lifeless, scared. It won’t let the word be seen. I can’t see. It has filled my chest. It forces its way down my throat, It pulls in my ribs, It claws at my lungs, I can’t breathe.
inspired by the feeling of a panic attack or constant anxiety. Also related to numbness or depression.
