Do not touch me.
Your touch is suffocating.
Your arms wrapped trying to console me.
Are like tongues of a flame.

The walls close in
The roof begins to concave
The oxygen has disappeared
I must be dying.

My shirt tightens
My organs windup, restricting
But my heart is a hummingbird
Every atom of me shakes.

Just leave me alone
Get away
Earth, swallow me whole
Let me die.
