    This is something I’d almost forgotten
    fickle mind.
    ::Enter stage left, The World’s Quietest Storm::.
    My mind is like Hollywood
    so many sequels I can’t tell the difference
    and don’t know why I even come to the theater anymore.
    I’d leave the building except
    I’m always seated in the middle
    with the legs of a number of people
    blocking my exit.
    Likely to end up tripping
    landing on the floor
    next to week old vomit and stale popcorn.
    I’ve also forgotten the scariest thing about this.
    When it comes for me, this face-burnt, sharp-toed fear,
    I would do anything to free myself from it.
    Excise it like Time’s most wretched birth.
    Sell my soul if I knew how.
    Find religion, though the faith is always fleeting.
    I forgot this, panic, raw and flailing,
    trapped inside a screaming space
    with muffly walls, when I am all of edges and vaporous.
    I am a Flail, the noun-ed version of a verb.
    I recalled the fear,
    just not in full the abject desperation.

    I love the imagery and your use of similes and metaphors.
