Poetic, Painful, Panic

Written by: Emma Hughes

The Heart Pounds,
It's not Mine,
It can't Be.

It's Unfamiliar.
My Chest Expands
To A Beat Thats Overpowering.
I Don't Understand Anymore.

Poetically, Painfully, Panicked.

Put My Hand To Your Heart,
Slow Me Down.

Time Stops.

I Have Inhaled Pure, Paranoia Concentrate.
I warn you
My Heart Will Stop
I Can't Make It Through This.


Then, My Heartbeat Drops




Thank you.
