    What’s it like.
    check yourself I’m failing.
    Bleeding through the nose and all so vast.
    An entire world rushes around me
    a whirl
    all sharp edged beauty
    and cruel as blood from a stone.
    My mind is squeezing me to bits
    No breath or manmade thought
    I am become terror.
    There is a world outside my nut
    and all I want is to curl inside
    and hide until the noise stops.
    The world is too loud too bright too fast
    and I all raw edges.
    I want an exoskeleton to keep out the unholy din.
    If you are waiting for me to start it
    I am the deer in the road blind
    I’ll not be moving.
    My eyes are wide and everywhere
    calamity looms.

    Fear is so encompassing...have worked on this for years, and I am still afraid of so many things...and yes, I wish I had a shell to crawl into most of the time...thanks for sharing...J
