It starts with a flutter in my gut
Slight discomfort
Nervous system detects disturbance
Brain takes note
Focus on sensation
Amplified awareness
Something moves up
Towards my solar plexus
It stings as it gets it's claws in
Alarm goes off
Heart rate goes up
Breathing accelerates
Fight or flight?
Fuck....neither... I am trapped
Space contracts
Muscles as well
Room slightly darkens
No choice left
But to make fear
My friend

Author's Note
I just got my anxiety triggered by a hurricane that is on it's way towards us. It will be weaker, probably just a tropical storm when it gets here, but I get really claustrophobic during those storms, sitting in the house when all hell breaks loose outside. You never know how bad it gets. I feel very pre occupied by this right now, so I thought I write how I feel.
