Fear Knot

Fear knot.

Tangled in emotions

Tripping over my self,

Stumbling. Stopped. Seeing.


This business of being human,

Feeling the feels

Way, too, big.


Trapped, too tight

For breath squeezed dry

Before swallowing.


Connected through disconnecting,

Forced to stop quickly,

Rear ended by reality

Waking up in the wilds.


What do we do

When the tiger’s

This close?


Breathe,

Count to 10,

Turn,

Look him in the eye

And remember

Who you were

Before

The world tamed you.
