In My Heart

As I'm looking out the window and considering what to do...

I realise an hour's gone by and I'm really missing you.

The memories come flooding in, the loss feels hard to bare

I try to give myself a break, but I never quite get there.


How can time go by so fast while it's also standing still?

I drag my body through the day, mostly against it's will.

My concentration is lacking, my focus non-existent.

My intention and my apathy, are often inconsistent.


I toss and turn for hours at night yet sleep, it rarely comes

Then when it does, I awake to that familiar sucker punch

I don't know how to function even when things are important.

My motivation and lust for life appear to be lying dormant.


It sometimes feels you've gone away for a day trip or a meeting

And then, my chest feels heavy and I find myself left reeling.

How do I get through this? My life is changed for ever.

But know that you'll be in my heart always and forever.

You know that feeling? Your heart races...you start to shake...you find it difficult to swallow ...and you think you might faint, or worse? That is the condition known as #Anxiety and #Panic. michel
