Poetry Pleases: That Feeling

Mary Clemons has a premonition that something bad is going to happen.

Your throat is dry, your voice is weak
A tingling spine makes you meek

Somethingís going to happen.

Clasping hands donít stop their shaking
Your lips are numb and begin quaking

Something badís going to happen.

Your senses sharpen, nerves on end
At every sound you turn again

Something bad has happened

Your heart beat quickens, your breath comes short
Your body trembles and knees abort

Mother has arrived.
