My neck is warm and flush.
A drop of sweat leaves my body
as I lean over to let more blood rush into my brain.
Yet my head continues to spin.
Loss of control
I try harder to take a deep breath.
My lungs expand
accommodating the hot air that surrounds me.
I am supposed to feel better, instead I feel nothing.
I lay down, and close my eyes.
Hours pass by.
The chaos within me begins to slow down.
I feel a strange sense of weightlessness.
Air flows in with ease.
Lips curl up in joy.
