Breathe

Just breathe

I close my eyes, trying to focus, to separate illusion from reality. Partition thoughts from my illness, and thoughts of my own.
Slow breath in. slower exhale.
Slow breath in, slower exhale.
Slow breath in

My unbridled pulse gradually, slackens its pace and eventually settles into a relaxed cadence. The thoughts in my head froth, crash, ebb, and flow, and slowly settle like the ocean after a storm – waves and thoughts in a soothing rhythm

Just breathe
Focus
Breathe
Inhale
Exhale
Inhale
Exhale
Breathe

Slowly, haltingly, the fog that’s been enveloping my mind and dulling my thoughts begins to fade and break. Through the heavy gloom a breath of freshness, a waft of life and light

Breathe
Focus
Inhale
Exhale
Breathe

Almost like a rebirth, like shaking off the cloak of hibernation, hope begins to creep in

Life
Hope
Oxygen
Light
Breathe
