Poem, Aprehensive*, 7-31-12

Aprehensive* comprehensive**
Start and stop
Split decision
Heart might stop
Adrenaline is smoking gun
From ill faited efforts done
Not from inspiration but
From the panic still within
Panic from abandonment
Panic from the deeds of sin
Panic from embarrassment
Panic from such sharp chagrin***
Can't explain
It simply IS.

--EVE Featherstone
