I feel it in my stomach, heavy, dead. The taste on my tongue contaminates my mouth, makes my throat dry, my lips crack.
The feeling is dread, the taste; fear.
Surprisingly, my hands aren't sweaty, I must have wrung them dry. And my breathing, despite the foulness inside me, is steady and even. i hope my voice can mirror that.
