For this week’s prompt I want you to describe an emotion using your senses. Do not describe the emotion in terms of other emotions (aka adjectives). Describe it in terms of bodily reactions, perceptions, behavioral changes induced by the emotion. Describe it scientifically and/or abstractly.
It starts, slow and almost unnoticed then gradually rises to the surface.
Your temperature changes, you may catch your breath, stutter, gesture with your arms.
Sometimes it can overwhelm you, engulf you, or reduce you to a quivering mass.
Irritating niggles, irrational thoughts, erratic behaviour, possible loss of control.
Tears may threaten or spill unchecked down your cheeks.
Best to take yourself away before you say or do something you’ll regret.
In hindsight, embarrassed at letting rip, you calm down on your terms.
