panic surges

panic surges

A Poem by Celtic Cat

Panic surges
Urges sanity out

Hesitation to admit
Don’t speak it
Don’t feed it
Don’t think it
Don’t unleash it
Release it
Appease it

Mind over matter
Matter your mind
Mind your grey matter
Does is matter?

So what?
So what if you jump
So what if you stop breathing
So what if you can’t get air
So what if you’ve turned into your own worst enemy
So what if you can do yourself in with the contents of your soul
The ideas in your head
The fear in your heart
So what
Jump
Suffocate
Die

f.e.a.r.
Your choice
Your voice
Your opinion

Consummation
What consumes you
Where’s your courage?

So many questions posed within this piece....give in to the panic...let it consume...feeling in the consuming that perhaps it will pass...or does it lead down the dark path? to utter destruction? Is that courage to take that leap? Or is it cowardice and letting fear win? Ages old questions that burn and are never truly answered. It packs a powerful punch. Not sure I'd tweak it.

You capture those horrible niggles and doubts that can overwhelm us so badly sometimes. They are irrational and powerful. We know they are wrong and we are wrong to harbour them. But by their nature they can't be easily stopped. I suspect the only way is to just walk away from them and do something different, smiling at the first person we encounter as we do so. Great write because of its urgency which mirrors the nature of the painc surges.

Anxiety adrenaline. Good at times...not so much at others. I'm not sure of the direction but the feeling behind it is felt! :)

I would leave it the way it is....it sort of asks the read to do something but them tries to tell them to do something. I'm finding it very hard to determine what it is, but I find that I do like it. Welcome back and good to see you here
