Swimming upstream on the fearful river

2015-07-20 22.02.32

I’m quickly rising up high

But speedily sinking deep into my seat

The surrounding sounds frighten me

My beating heart has overtaken my senses

I breathe in wondering if others feel as I do

I just see my fear on their faces

I’m sinking deeper and deeper

My lips bloat and quiver

Find me a battle cry

Pass the whiskey neat

Listen to the banshee

Lower the pretenses

The stomach butterflies wiggle and chew

Asking for good graces

I’m sinking deeper and deeper

Swimming upstream the fearful river

Must stop, rise and punch the fear away

Must not succumb to dizziness

Pluck out the stings
