Control

Creeping, crawling.
Look.
Walking, whirling.
Stop.

Over your shoulder.
Eyes, staring.
Look away.
Can’t.
Should.

He’s there.
Watching.
Waiting.
Ready to attack.
Ready to cut you open
with only words.

Immobilized by fear,
you freeze.
Unsure.
Waiting.

He stops,
you run.

Heart racing,
hands shaking.
Can’t breathe.
No escape.

Trapped.
No way out.

Eyes tearing,
brain thinking.
Can’t breathe.
No escape. 


Screaming,
Tears falling,
Hands shaking,
mind blanking.
Can’t run,
can’t hide.
You’ve lost control.
You’re panicking.

Panicking
for no reason,
or a million reasons all at once.
You lose yourself,
If only for a minute.
That’s all it takes
for you to fall.
