A Poet Never Sleeps

One day you will be faced with the impossible. When you become afraid, become inspired.

10 January 2013


Without warning
Faster than a blink
I stop

Completely shut down
gasping for breath
Writhing in pain

At first I can hide it
Hold it in
Then it breaks free

Every rib sore
Each moment in misery
I can't breath

The scariest feeling
Beyond comprehension
Life slipping away

But then it ends
Abate only for a moment
And I carry on

Hurried questions
Thrown from around
Asking if I'm ok

And I smile
Because I am.
