, ,

My heart is racing,

Blood pumping in my ears,

A stinging pain in the chest,

Hands trembling.

I close my eyes,

Feel the waves of anxiety,

Taking over.

Close my eyes,

‘It’ll get better’.

Close my eyes, 

Feel the pain in my muscles.

Close my eyes, 

I see images.

Close my eyes,

I can’t think,

I can’t read,

I can’t write.

Close my eyes, 


‘You’ll be alright.’

‘Trust the process.’
