Scary Situation

My pulse is racing, I feel faint, 
My heartbeat thunders in my ears,
The sweat is trickling down my back,
My mind is filled with dread and fears.

I think my heart will surely stop,
Too scared to move, my legs give out, 
I tremble, sense the coming doom,
My mouth is dry, too hoarse to shout.

Resigned, I start to pray and quake,
For Mother bakes another cake…

*my mum doesn’t really bake cakes, good or bad!!

For Roy’s Poems to keep you awake at night contest, 1st June
