Panic

Gripping the chair

Holding on for dear life

Fighting not to drown

Waves of emotion pouring over

Only to recede and wash over again

Breathing is nearly impossible

Squeezing tighter

Momentous effort to gain control

Waves subside

Air coming in gulps

Exhaustion overwhelms

Tension starts to ease

Must hold on

Fight another day

Walking in the world

Waiting for the waves
