I woke up tired today.

Hot sweet


In tiny white cups,

Stirred me a little.


But  lethargy,

And the heat,

And the crushing  humidity


Made me anxious,

Gave me palpitations,

Made me light headed

And confused.


I had no plans today

So I sat at a pavement café

Sipping expressos,

Staring at people.


And when the dehydration

Brought on

Panic attacks


I was no longer tired,

And even though

I had absolutely

Nothing to do,


I was terrified

And saw quick stars

And white lines

When I closed my eyes.


And I just cringed

At the thought

Of the nightmares
