Panic Attack

whirling, swirling, deep inside
starting small — growing wide
twisting, turning, circling ’round
welling up — slamming down

fear and panic consume me
talons tight — can’t break free
tighten claws, suck me up
gulp, slurp — on me they sup

talons sinking in my chest
is this death — final rest?
weak, gasping — try hard to breath
O Lord God — make them leave!
