i admit this is a little of a stretch for the theme but i wrote this little piece to portray sensory overload and the anxiety felt in its presence— hence, the shaking.

Shaking in my skin

tiptoes against the window

tiptoes against the window spider taps like rain

tiptoes against the window spider taps like rain a gentle knock on the oak wood door

tiptoes against the window spider taps like rain a gentle knock on the oak wood door a water trickling doorbell ring

snowflake tickles as clock gears turn

snowflake tickles as clock gears turn seconds faster than before

snowflake tickles as clock gears turn seconds faster than before the empty hollow hoot of hours

snowflake tickles as clock gears turn seconds faster than before the empty hollow hoot of hours creaking faucet marbles spill

stallions racing on glass carpet

stallions racing on glass carpet banging hooves against the floor

stallions racing on glass carpet banging hooves against the floor the marbles are as big as buckets

i can’t take it anymore.

i jump into the smooth round glass

i jump into the smooth round glass the snowflakes melt to stone

i jump into the smooth round glass the snowflakes melt to stone i’m barefoot on the rocks that crunch my knuckles every step

i pound the ground but it’s too empty

i pound the ground but it’s too empty hollow

i pound the ground but it’s too empty hollow hoot

bass drum

i scream but all that comes of it

i scream but all that comes of it is muffled sorrow—

i scream but all that comes of it is muffled sorrow— foreign tongue.
