    clock like a drumbeat
    heart bursting, thump thump, thump thump
    breath stilled, arrested

    heaviness, oh the
    heaviness in my stomach
    which is stretched, knotty

    life suspended by
    a thin wire, the tension won't
    completely leave me

    time crawling by like
    slow strangulation, my release
    up to someone else

    tears come down my face
    unbidden and I don't care
    that everyone sees

    gripped, frantic, tied down
    eating my insides, clawing
    hard at the itching

    the pain hurricaine
    make it stop, please make it stop
    but I can't, I can't

    how did i miss this
    a timebomb of a ticktock
    feel the heart pulsate?

    a year has gone by
    the clock seems to have slowed down
    ticking more gently?

    bad situation
    killed me for three days solid
    kept me in a vice

    resolved days after
    now it's one of my fondest
    memories, that day
