It begins with a sour feeling in my gut.
The room begins to spin, vertigo-like and I
want to run screaming: “Make it stop!”
There is a buzzing in my ears.
I cannot hear anything but what sounds like a
muffled beehive sitting on my shoulder.
Everything becomes warped as my vision begins
The walls start to tremble as do my hands and I
cannot stop shaking them wildly at nothing.
I feel my heart beating impossibly fast.
It takes over from the angry beehive in my ears.
