calm, cool, collected.

calm, cool, collected.
and then just like that, it comes.
a jolt of panic.

crawling up my bones;
up the ribs that cage my heart.
until breath quickens.

thoughts will not quiet.
like monsters,they scream out loud.
howling I'm not fine.

fighting with myself.
spiraling out of control.
waiting to be calm,

cool and collected.
in order to breathe again. 
and continue on.
