Accelerate

My foots on the gas,

Pushing it all the way down,

As my mind races along an empty road.

I can feel my heartbeat in my ears,

Too hard,

Too fast,

Too loud.

And it gets louder,

As the feeling in my stomach sinks deeper,

Until I think I can feel it in my spine,

Every breath gets shorter,

And the booming in my ears grows,

Like an engine working too hard.

The roar becomes a ringing.

The world becomes a blur.

Trees and grass and sky,

Running together,

Then fading away.

I’m out of control.

Slamming down on the break pedal.

Nothing happens.
