Chest heaving
You can’t breathe
Pain in your chest pain in your stomach
Pain in your heart.
The roaring in your head won’t stop
You think in that moment that you’re dying, that you’re shattering-
Can’t breathe
Can’t breathe
Can’t-
Breathe
You’re ok.
But the shaking in your hands won’t stop-
You are loved, you are light
You are the trees and the rushing water
The echo of birdsong on a distant wind.

 

But your heart is tired, the world is too much
The noise
The fear
Everyone talking everyone asking things of you, too much it’s too much it’s too much-
Stop

 

Breathe
Remember the people
The ones who hold you, the ones who see you, the ones who understand.
You are light
The panic is in your head
Don’t listen to that part of you screaming that you can’t.
Rest.
You will be ok
It will pass
You are light and power
The crackling air before a violent, beautiful storm
You are stars in an infinite cosmos
You are the howl of a hungry she-wolf into the beckoning darkness.
You are made of love.

 

Breathe
