She's Back

Trigger warning: this piece discusses themes of panic attacks. 

There she goes again 

She’s back there

Back lying on the floor 

Eyes dry from crying 

Chest heavy from the weight of it all

Weight of the world so heavy on her shoulders

Is this going to happen again?

The room is different 

Feeling the same

The road keeps going

She could follow it till it ends

They’re waiting for her though

Here’s the bend

What way does she go?

This is not the same

That was there 

This is here

She’s not on the floor

She stood up

They were there 

Hands outstretched

Come Back 

Look up

Breathe in 

Breathe Out 

Chest is light

She’s back
