I can feel it coming back—
It behaves like
a friend I have forgotten
but who keeps coming back.
I can never feel accustomed to it.
Every experience is frightening.
I can see a red board of caution
even on feeling the slightest symptoms.
I am panting a lot lately
since I am not feeling at ease
and like I am unable to breathe
except for some moments of peace.
I should have guessed
that I how can I be left
alone, comfortable and relaxed
and be rid of this friend forever.
I think I know
how to deal with it
but I really don’t know
how to handle its severity.
The next few days
may be filled with difficulties.
All I think I can do now is say
all the best to me.
