Paralysis

Only thought existed

When the wave came – toe to head.

Limbs motionless,

Paralysed,

Numb to movement.

Afraid

Something,

Someone

Present and

In control.

And fear.

Such fear.

A mind to be lost

Perhaps

As with a soul,

If body has no control.

A thought occurs,

Grows stronger,

Repeated internally.

Release

From head to toe.

Relief.

Such relief.
