OpEn SpAcEs

When going out it frightens me,                                                                      
I can feel the tension as it builds                                     
Like clash of the titans, the anxiety,
It now feels like it's war of the worlds

My mouth becomes dry, my lips, I lick
This feeling like I'm going to collapse
I'll health, a situation where I feel sick
Again this now feels like it's a relapse

And when your always stuck in that cue
And all you then want is to get from a - b
It always feels like a rush to get through
That’s when I started to feel so panicky 

I can't breathe ,that feeling a loss of air
That’s how it did feel when I was outside
Just wanting to leave get on out of there
But trying to find my self a place to hide

It got even worse, my eye sight went blurry
That’s when everything started to turn black
Should I then see the nurse it was so scary
I thought here again it's another panic attack

When ever I'm in these large open spaces
That is something that get's me so annoyed
When looking at you all these different faces
That is what always makes me so paranoid.



Parts of this were taken from an old poem idea I rewrote and scaped so many times
called misshaps felt this better as descibes tha event but how I do get at times even now
but again like others up dating put into better context   OPEN SPACES 
WRITTEN BY MY SELF DAVIDSCOTT FEB MARCH 2013 ,,,,,,,,,,inspierd by past present situations
and friends family at those times 

PLEASE SOMEONE TELL ME IF THIS TO LONG I FEEL IS BUT ALSO WANTED TO GIVE A LITTLE INSIGHT TO 
TME AND SPACE ETC WITHOUT REPEATING MY SELF???
