Peak Into Darkness

Violent breath
Short bursts
My heart’s bound to explode

Pressure build
and body aches
Brain waves idled in panic

Sweat stains
and the sound drains
Save for the beating in my skull

Muscle twitch
and psyche itch
My lungs burn in revulsion

No use
Self abuse
Drink to bring the ebb

Relief is slow
Nor does it stop the flow
Of my enthralled mind’s worry
