Feeling Caught in a Whirlwind

BREATH

Breath move slowly
Help me pause and
Gain control
Of this situation
This life

My thoughts chafe
All friction
And fusion
Without you I cannot
Break free

Glide smoothly
Past rough edges
Jagged with pain
Where I’ve torn myself
From love

Quiet my screams
Like a firm hand on
A quivering string
Silence these notes
Held long

Remind me gently
I am spirit
I am air
The space, the gap
Between

Breath move slowly
Help me recognize
Each open moment
Every silent choice
My life
