Do you feel it rising
That hounding urge
Scraping your bones
Bringing your blood
To a lightning boil
Bursting veins as it
Forcefully makes way
To the only escape
Separating your jaws
And exploding out
A deathly screech
Shattering the lungs
Parching your throat
With its familiarity
It strikes in anger
And is the voice
Of your fears
It creeps on you
In times of stress
It may be invisible
But its felt by millions
What is it you may ask?
The scream
