Close your eyes

Take a deep breath

…Wait for it…

Don’t rush it

It shall pass

… The Pain…

The pain that renders you Speechless

Motionless and Numb

Count to ten

Just like you practiced


Self mantra

I feel the pain

Rolling down my cheeks

These tears tell you

Everything I keep hidden inside

and fail to put in words

But you don’t see it

Take a deep breath

I know it will pass

Take it one moment at a time

…God help me…

This hurt

A little more than usual

My knees buckle to the floor

“I just want to be ok… I want to forget You”
