Groundless Panic

Neurotic pounding of frayed, broken mind,

This electric pulse: mere groundless panic.

Mimosa girl hides sobbing by the fence,

Love disintegrated by groundless panic.

Sparks buzzing through skin: a witch’s magic,

Flowers manifest in groundless panic.

The seamstress is a diligent woman,

Eyed cheating lover in groundless panic.

Fools eating heaven’s words like sheep eat grass,

Pour in dollars to quell groundless panic.

Leader steels takes bullets barrel by barrel,

Followers will flee with groundless panic.

I asked this witch for vengeful rituals,

Gave me flowers without groundless panic.

Friends fraternizing with the enemy,

Lost it, gave into this groundless panic.

Envy is my first, last and middle name,

Gutted, bled rival in groundless panic.

Tunneled vision, fingernails cut skin,

Eyes turned wild due to groundless panic.

Witch of age thirteen burning bright on stake,

Sliding down her legs is groundless panic.

Thunder clapping, C4s exploding will

Burst my bleeding heart with groundless panic.

Lonely girl in bright classroom, disloyalty,

She watched them leave in groundless panic.
