Held in Check

I have been
In some moments for days, weeks,
Feeling a tightness in my chest
Ache rising.
Throat constricted.
Emotions stopped there.
Stuck or held in check, the result is the same.
My hand rises to hold my heart in.
Waiting for whatever comes next.
Listening to silence
It feels like a crash and burn.
But I keep trying not to interpret
Through ears muffled with events of my past.
