2 A.M. Panic Attack

November 27, 2014

My balance falters,
I grip my sheets tight
Trying to breathe normally
Inhale. Exhale. Inhale…
I am unable to exhale again

My eyes tear up,
I squeeze them shut
Swallowing the lump in my throat
Don’t you be sick. Don’t you dare.
I feel nauseated to the core

My heart beats too fast,
It’s about to burst from my chest
Calm down, count to ten
One, two, three, four, five…
I lose count all too quickly

My head swims in nightmares,
Disappointment, heartbreak
I need to forget
Don’t think about it. Let it go.
I can’t erase these dark thoughts

My whole self is exhausted,
But soon 2am will pass
The demons will rest for tonight
Close your eyes; say goodnight.
I sleep until the sun rises
