Anxiety attack

Close your eyes but do not sleep
focus on my voice, as it trails
to stop a train, my voice
yes myy

the room is not getting smaller
not spinning
not running around you
you are still standing, somehow

it won't stop, that beating heart of yours
the insignificant details that will insist
on you keeping your eyes open
sentences that begin with what if and end in a scene of drowning

the falconer hears its falcon
for this world does not end
yet, the trees still stand firmly
on the ground

close your eyes
breath in all the walks by the beach
all the times someone hugged you tight
the times you fed the dog fish food for fun

close your eyes
do not fall asleep
but keep focusing on my voice, friend.
