Saving Proportions

Lungs bunched, tied into knots
Air scarce as a vacuum
But I don’t know the why
Something is coming

I can feel it in the gurgling of my gut
Unease creeps across the bumps of my skin
An impending disaster plays in my mind
It starts to wander down dark alleys
Splashing graffiti across the walls
Words of terror and gloom
Multiply rapidly on the back of my eyelids
Ready for a horror show replay
A little feeling blown into the apocalypse
Jeopardizing the serenity of peace
In the flexible container of an accepting mind
