Something is calling my name.
Something is driving me insane.
Is whispers in the dark. Telling lies and ripping me apart.
Calling my name in words I can’t understand.
Telling me things
It is creeping up on me.
Always close by
It can smell my fear.
My heart rate quickens and I beg it to slow.
I just want to sleep.
I don’t want to feel.
I just want to pretend like none of this is real.
I am afraid
I can’t take this much more.
Then it starts to wane.
I can hear my own thoughts again.
The whisper calms down
My heart slows down
