chills run over my legs.
my torso burns.
it took me probably ten minutes
to realize my teeth hurt
from clenching my jaw so tightly.
five more minutes.
just five more.
my legs clench again.
my back aches.
my feet are sweaty in my shoes.
three minutes.
my shins chill.
my spine burns.
desks creak.
my handwriting looks worse and worse.
(i hear my friends walk by)
two minutes.
a chill passes over my burning shoulders.
my fingers are shaking horribly.
and finally
i'm DONE.
