Fear Rushing Through

By
More by this author
My nerves are tingling,
my chest is constricting,
my shoulders are heaving,
my heart in my throat
as I attempt a sound.
I feel alive.

My throat is parched,
my brain is numb,
my fingers are stiff,


my palms are moist
as I try to slip away.
I feel cornered.

My ears are mute,
My eyes blind to the world,
adrenaline is pounding.
My breath is coming in pants,
my feet are poised to run.
I feel conflicted.

I see nothing,
I hear nothing,
as the blood rushes
through my veins.
The terror sinks in.
But I am
not
afraid.

I love the detailed description - and also the ending, with the hint of defiance!

This is what I felt like when I went down a mountain on skis for the first time (and last!) time!
