Summer Morning

The hot sun is

burning on your back

as you try to

escape the latest attack.

Panic has hit you

without warning

as you went out walking

this beautiful

summer morning.

You attempt to hide

from people you meet,

drawing inquisitive looks

from those you

normally greet.

Seeing you like this

they must think

you extremely rude,

when in fact it’s just you

and your social ineptitude.

Now not even outside

can you be sure

whether your mind

is going to take you

on an unwelcome detour.
