Tanka 2

This pressure on me
Rooms are closing in, can’t breathe
The worst is yet here
My heart is beating quickly
Panic, this pressure on me

    Whoa! That is not a feeling I would wish on anyone. You've brought out the sense of panic well - the pressure, the inability to breathe, the racing heart -panic is not an ally. And to think the worst has not occured -more pressure. Aaaargh! Very well written Holly!
