Gripped with fear

Driving in a lonely tunnel. Two burly motor cyclists passed by, without crash helmets. Something reached into my a gripped my heart. I had to make a great effort to draw air into my lungs.

The lonely tunnel ended at a deserted highway. I had to make even greater effort to draw in air. 

It's happening again. I thought I had beat it. I thought it was gone forever. Why is it back??????

Consciously using my diaphragm to get air in, feeling my heart beat fast. Thinks to myself. I won't last till I get home. Afraid I may get dizzy. Called a friend.

Made small talk, to distract myself. Also to hear a familiar voice. Then he asked, what's wrong. Was it so evident in my voice? Did I give myself away? 

When will it go away????
