Flash 55 - Tunnel

 
~ click to make biggerer ~
 
 
its pressing in on me
my pantomime box
crushing me
like a trash
compactor
made of clear lucite
but as strong
as a 2am panic attack
that steals my breath away
and makes my skin crawl
with daddy long legs
and chiggers
invisible
to the naked eye
but neon and pulsing
in my mind’s eye

  2. Panic Attacks are horrendous. I've had a few and they are so personal and violating.

    Your lines of poetry here build that feeling so well. The sense of compaction, the gasping for breath.

    Nicely written.

  6. Great photo and powerful written image. Panic is always worst when it happens in the middle of the night.
