Under the skin

Terror creeps under the skin
and doesn’t leave you unaffected.
It permanently fights to win
against the barrier you erected.

The skin of animals is deep
and often toughened by a fur.
Whatever panic dares to creep
under the skin makes instincts stir.

The fight or flight reaction saves
in cases when a danger strikes.
And so each animal behaves
to save its skin and what it likes.
