Attack

Updated: Nov 9, 2022

Published April, 2021 in Willard & Maple Volume XXII's digital and physical anthology


Gasping for breath,

Walking in circles

The room closes in

Walls

Smaller and smaller

Air draining from existence


You sink down

Knees pulled against your chest

Holding tighter and tighter

Heat

Pulses through your body

Head spinning twists twirling


Hands in your hair

Pulling

Yanking

Screaming to get the voices

Out.



A poem created for a college project my first year, but it was elevated during a workshop exercise my junior year.


Willard & Maple is a creative magazine created by Champlain College's Center for Publishing.
