boom splat by anonymous

eyes reflecting back at you
red and orange creep in
filling my pupils until
i can see nothing else
not you
not me
nothing

my heart rises
up
up
up
into my neck
my throat
my ears

it thumps, bangs, screams in my head

i breathe
air in huge bursts fills my mouth
i force it down into my lungs
i breathe again
just as big, but slower
and again i breathe
and again

blue and green float into my eyes
water and wind and peace
you take shape
i see you
feel me
i am back
we are back
the ground is solid under me
i am rooted in the earth
i am in my body again
