Smothering strangers sharing similar dangers
A waiting room full of nervous glances and flitting stares
Does anybody speak? Nobody dares!
The room begins to move and my heart is beating fast
I wonder how long this one is going to last!?
I shift in my seat with growing agitation
Trying to catch my breath but becoming consumed by frustration
Everybody is staring they can sense I can't cope
Self esteem drops and I begin to loose all sense of hope
I can't breath this is it, I'm going to pass out
As much as I try to reason that's all my brain is shouting out
I'm hurting towards rock bottom
The revolving door of life spins me through this process again and i just can't seem to stop em
My head begins to pound and my heart is fighting to leave my chest
To live is all I want but to die sometimes seems best
I take that long last attempt at a deep gasp for air and the oxygen kicks in
The aftermath of the attack can slowly begin
Exhaustion, cold shivers, the headache and nausea believe it or not are a good sign
It shows I've survived this one and the panic attack and anxiety will all pass in time.
