and again

we tried,

i tried,

he tried.

its been so good.

and as it got quiet,

peaceful and still.

skin to skin

warm and reassuring.

a sharp shift

of smell,

not skin.

a refocus,

of him,

now not him.

so fast

it happens.

he felt the shift.

knew straight away.

thank fuck.

and before i could breath


remind myself

that it wasn’t then,

that it is now

i came undone…


then shaken,

then tears,

then that fucked up choke


breath dear, breath

so cruel it is,

to be so close

but slapped back

so far




warm tears still

that sting like a bitch

      Thankyou <3 and yes they certainly are! I thought the panic was my nemesis … but these are proving to be more a bitch a.t.m.!

      1. My therapist likes mindfulness meditation but it not instinctive yet enough for me that I actually remember it when I am panicked or triggered.

          Ah yes … its more of a lifestyle change/practice, otherwise, like you say, it doesn’t kick in on time.
          I hope it works for you eventually though <3

        2. It would certainly be more effective if I practiced daily!

          Yeah, I figured that out by trial and horrendous error ;) I just start small, 2-3 minutes in the shower, or when your having your coffee etc … seemed to work better for me like that xo
