Nerves /poem/

Shit they’re staring
expectantly and waiting
with their minds sending messages like
“Come on, talk…” or
“What’s the answer?”
But like a fool
you gaped and stammered,
while your heart skips every other beat.
And just like that, your name was called.
After who knows how long,
You finally said something.
only to be responded by the rest of the class
with a booming laughter.
cause, lo, you answered the wrong question.
