reddish

racing heart
spidering bosom
pinking cheeks
trembling guts
bracing
astonishing 
at the reddening
of my fear.

  3. 'the reddening of my fear' ... such an image. i can see it blooming there, in the spidering bosom. imagagistic and palpable. i can hear the blood pounding in your speakers ears.. the drawing of breath. a true anticipatory moment.

  5. I felt the physical sensations of fear rising. You captured them well in this brief bit.
