Panic Attack

So I wrote two Tanka poems on panic attacks since I have a lot to say about them. I used to suffer from panic attacks daily, but now I don’t have them as much, thankfully. They are scary things. My poems are based on my experience, which may not be true for everybody. 


I’m breathing harder

Heart is racing, mouth is dry

Fingers, toes tingle

Uncontrollable shaking

Body goes to panic mode

Thirty minutes long;

Am I going to die this time?

Will my heart give in?

Will my breathing suddenly stop?

No. Just a panic attack.
