I put on my shoes
my heart skips a beat
open the door
and the noise is deafening
the sun blinds me
the heat is too much
the smells of exhaust
and the taste of my blood
as I bite my nails
taking a deep breath
but my lungs feel collapsed
crushed by the
tightening of my chest
I place my hand there
moist with sweat
to feel my heart
as it beats unsteady
the world falls apart
my thoughts are not my own
my body floats above it
my quivering figure
everything is television static
after that, I can't remember
I find myself inside again
unsure of how I got there
