|Sometimes there are moments when we are filled with a vague,yet terrifying feeling of apprehension-when reason is overcome by panic and one's subconscious becomes one's worst enemy.This poem is about such moments.|
APPREHENSION Lips trembling, face burning, heart pumping; The forces of id work relentlessly to overthrow reason from this temple- A strange unnatural heat spreads through the body like a spirit freed; Turbulence in the soul, sweat in the brow And vague senses of doom in the ears ring.
