Shudder, heart racing
Palms sweating, smooth clothes fitting
Short of breath, breaking
Into a run, pain jabbing
At my heart, I feel
Sick and puke it all
Over my stilletto heels
I knew I should not…
I shouldn’t have had
That drink… that man.. his cologne
Urgh… Puke again.. argh
There was something off
About him. The bar. I should
Have trusted my gut!
Head spinning fast… now,
The sidewalk feels close… too close…
It is dark… too dark…

Be aware. Stay in control. Think.
Is that drink worth taking that risk?
