Panic

I am scared.
No, not scared,
Terrified.
I am terrified of the world,
Of the future.
Anxiety is creeping in,
Soaking into my bones,
Poisoning my mind.
I am waiting to break,
For the panic to take hold,
For my grip on reality
To disappear.
The darkness will come
Soon.
I cannot escape its clutches.
Fear has come for me.
