Life

1.09 am.

1.09 am.
Sleeping deeply, eyes snap open
Heart racing, mind racing, trembling, sweating, gulping air
Panic … dying …
Sitting up; straighten back, hands in lap
Raging storm persisting
Counting breaths
One, one, two, two, three, three, four, four, five, five … one, one …
Faltering, continuing
Slowly … slowly … slowly quietening …
