Emotion #writespiration

Pallid hands grasping
Hot breath and a leering smile
Looming over me

In certain knowledge of pain
Rigid muscles locked

Silent screams muffled
Echoing through every nerve
As he advances

Unable to flee
Submission the only choice
I am powerless

Numb and reliving
A lifetime of emotion
In the dentist’s chair

For Sacha’s 52 word writing challenge… describe an emotion without naming it.
