Retake Control

Emotional haywire without a kill switch
Openly on the premises.

Fear, anxiety overtaking all
Systems up high and down below.

Swimming in the pool, drowning
Without the inner life raft.

These feelings abruptly came in an instant
Only to leave after tormenting the mind, the body.

It is nice to see you again my erratic mental self;
Was it nice to retake control yet again?

    Excellent work! The content… I know all too well what that feels like, hon. It sucks… Try 5 deep breaths, inhaling slowly, holding each one for five seconds, and then exhaling slowly. You are never alone!! ❤
