 reflections

panic


I awoke
the room had darkened
the life force had abandoned me
where was the warm sunshine?
the inner glow
my protector?
my body temperature soared
and my once clean bed clothes
clung to me with sweat
my conscious wakening
was now floating but
floating into what?

stay calm
I told myself
let the fear wash over you
like the tide washes over the beach
it will return
from where it came
ignore your heartbeat
which races as fast as the thoughts
in your mind
stay calm
focused on life force
find your place in nature
be there at the count of three

...

feel your heart rate decreasing
and the clouds of confusion clearing
just another attack I tell myself
just let your eyes close naturally
and Relax
breathe
deeper into relaxation
and sleep
sleep
sleep
