panic attack

By: Christy Wisdom

quick and fast, 
my chest rises
up and down
shuddering gasps

tug at my hair, 
where's my sanity?
what's happening
to me?

attack

but it's too late

drop to a

shaking
heaving
head between
my knees, 
now
breathe 
in 
out
in

why

what happened to
trigger this
i don't know
and i hate not knowing

waiting for it to

the storm can break-
will break

but until then
my breath is short
my hands tremble
chest heaves

and i
succumb
to the terror
 


Peer Review

You're writing style is so compelling. I love the way the poem flows. The way you write makes the panic attack seem real. The poem is honest and raw--with a sort of rugged beauty. What an amazing job!


I think it 'panic attack' did a beautiful job of describing--with both thoughts and actions.
