Illustration (For Those Who Wondered)

It starts out tiny like

a bare whisper

which is a terrible thing

because sometimes you don’t quite hear it

until it’s nearly a roar

a rolling rumbling


the sensation inside is like

a squeezing

a gripping

in your belly

and it sort of creeps upwards

from there

until your whole insides

are too tight

you choke on your breath

and can’t even swallow your food

it’s a little bit of sadness

a lot of fear

and even more nothing

and the nothing

is the scariest part
