I'm surrounded by a wall
with an electric field, and
so many barbs,
and lots of nasty prickly things.
The littlest things make me scared.
I run to the corner like a child,
and I shudder.
Feelings wrench your gut,
but you can't distinguish between
The more often those feelings
prove themselves to be valid,
the harder it gets to
shake them off.
A constant state of heart-in-throat
is likely quite unhealthy.
An incessant tingling of nerves
probably means something bad.
