Let Go and Let Me Live

I had post lined up for today, but unfortunately a panic attack ensued this morning, and I really was not expecting it. I woke up fine, finer than I have felt in a while, then BANG it just welled up and stayed around for 20 minutes or so.

I decided in order to release what I went through this morning, I would write about it.. so here it goes:


Let go, and Let Me live

“Stop it you are choking me!”

Out of breath I am frozen..

Not a muscle moving, only the

muscle of my mind…

..desperately focusing on the now..


I feel the cold concrete on my toes.

Digging my heals to feel more

Attaching myself to the balcony

imagining gravity pulling me in..


“Let go” I scream

Freedom is calling me

I breathe into the surf

and ride out the waves.


Crippling fear….

Angels Behold

your beloved needs you

wrap her up in your arms..


Breathing I find a little peace

It is so difficult to hold the air

Exhale, exhale, exhale…

Release the fear into tears..


Yet the tears are stuck,

fearing I will break in two

… the well is full

What if I drown?


“Release me!” I cry

“Let me live…

I beg you…

Let me live”..

      Love to you Tracie <3
