I Feel

My eyes burn with the on coming tears

Face bright red

Puffy and a little swollen

Breathing off-balance

and my heart beat

going a mile a minute

banging against my chest

Stomach in knots

nauseous and tired

Shaking randomly

not being able to control it

I sit curled in a ball

trapped in this instance

of unwanted clarity

fixed in a trance

that does not want to end

Weak, I feel

Dead, I feel
