Anatomy of An Asthma Attack

Burning
Lungs
Struggling for air
Heart racing
Gasping
Wheezing the only sound
Fear permeates
My very being
Screaming silently
No air
Eyes wide
Don't panic
Don't panic
It's ok
Just breathe
Please
No air
Nothing
Burning
Relax
World darkening
Stay conscious
Just breathe
Please
Calm down
World swimming back into view
Quell the panic
In through the nose
Out the mouth
Keep breathing
Inhaler
Puff
Hold the breath
Let it sink in
Please work
Quickly
Medicine sinks in
Breathing slows down
Panic fades
Wheezing slows
Air...
Glorious Air...
Fear fades
In control
Back to normal
Anatomy of an asthma attack
Just breathe...
Just breathe...
