The Panic Attack

Hits: 82

 

The familiar street suddenly so fearful.

Cars and people move out of time,

traffic lights are Martians under blackening skies.

The universe is suspended, and for a moment

I see raindrops on my shore.

A violet-blue hurricane blows through 

my eyes, stopping a tear or two.

Inside, my lungs are spluttering for breath.

Heart races, nervous twitches

as I pretend to read the paper to the world outside.

Turner's painting stands out on the page

I fix on a sunset vision of Margate

my calm restored and thirsty spirit slaked.
