What it’s like to have a panic attack

my eyes wonder
back and forth
from fear to fear
rationality evades my mind
all sense of peace
is not just lost but
forgotten

as if it never existed

ruthless in its assault
i stand naked, unarmed
and its knife pierces
the very flesh of my soul

surely i will die
of these imaginary wounds
surely this time
i won’t survive
