Deep Panic

Feeling this weight upon my chest today
Deep Panic

It washes over me

Like a heavy rain fall

Soaking through my clothes

Damp, wet, touch

Firstly my heart feels strange

Squashed under pressure

Trying to maintain its regular rhythm

Yet met with a frustrating resistance

My chest hurts

Tender, sore, trapped

My breath is caught

Short, sharp, quickening

I feel panic spread through my body

It paralyses me

Making me fragile, weak, lost

I fight to regain control

Taking deep slow breaths

Clearing my mind of negative thoughts

I manage to find an inner calm

Yet a feeling of dread

Still lingers on my chest

Like a weight 

I must carry

The panic within
