The heart struggles to keep up.

All the fear
resides within here
a blunt instrument
to relieve the torment
that twists and releases its toxins
throughout the circulatory system
the heart struggles to keep up
as the lacrimal glands secrete enough liquid to fill a cup
as the lungs gasp
beneath the pressure as they collapse
and yet the worries keep piling
as the brain continues filing
alphabetically no
numerically no
matter of importance no
the fingers move to slow
the entire system has to go
the pressure mounts
in tiring counts
and the brain implodes
causing an opposing force
which results in human combustion.

Thanks for reading.
