There I was in a strange place
Bizarre and foreign
Drowning within the sea of voices
Commotion surrounded me
Bright colors and primal music panicked me
My heart mercilessly pounding against my chest
It beats so hard I fear it will burst wide open
My pulse is racing, faster and faster
I feel it throbbing in my head
My breathing is becoming louder, more rapid and aching my throat with its wet heat
I am anxious, so anxious that I begin to run
Weaving frantically, dodging the faces, I know I must escape
So lost, so confused, and flooded with emotion
Fear, Pain, Confusion and Helpless Despair rushes through my every living cell
I am exposed
I am terrified
I hear a scream and I am startled to realize it is my own
What is happening to me?
Before it is too late
There in the crowd of strangers, I see something
What is it?
Who is it?
Help me, please!
“Wait!” I scream. “Don’t leave me, don’t go!”
I am lost and it is you.
You turn me and steal me away so soon I can’t catch my breath.
You can calm the tempest raging in my heart
Only you can save me.
Only you can hold me.
Only you can love me.
Only you. If only you will stay.
