Poetry Monday: Panic Attack

Breathing heavy
Hyper alert
Heart racing
Fingers tingling
Hands numb
The chills
No control
Irritability
Moody
Panic disorder

Staying busy
Mindless tasks
Movement is calming
The moment will pass
Just keep moving
Avoid others
Remove stimuli
Deep breaths
Fighting yourself
A constant battle

From the poetry collection Cats, Coffee, Catharsis.
