The clouds seem extra gloomy and heavy

Temper’s a lot shorter

Patience, not enough

Situations are less bearable

I stop; I take a deep breath

I close my eyes for ten seconds

Twenty, thirty

Five minutes, or so.


I try and open my eyes

I feel the familiar anxiety, like I am about to explode

Like a balloon poked by a sharp tip

I close my eyes again in fear

Ten minutes?

Can I keep them shut much longer?


Can all these pain and failures be gone

When I open my eyes to be blinded by the light again?
