Let Me Out

Anger is hot, fear is cold,
Love is warm and loneliness not
Emotions gushing through veins
Hitchhikers in my bloodstream
Dropping icicles along the way
Normally generous and giving
Anxiety turned to scrooge
Adrenal fluid freezes my pulse
Heart racked by the agony of lack
Though only perceived
My mind finds it a reality
Rendered motionless by terror
Despair eclipses all other feelings
Closed down in a foetal ball
Let me out
