Mantra

My heart went bump today
When you said “I was in an accident”
Black hail pummelled my eyes
Rage at the other driver
Paralyzing my hands

Smoke crept out of my lungs
As I poured down on the screams
I wanted to push out into open air

As I drove towards you
My knuckles white on the steering wheel
I thought,
“I have to be calm for him.”

I was scared for you.
All the worst scenarios
Ran through me,
My heart bumping at each one

Lifting into my throat
Be calm, be calm, be calm
A mantra at the back of my skull.

Thank god you’re okay.
Thank god I told you I loved you
Before you left
Thank god you’re okay.

I love you
I love you
I love you

Thank god you’re okay.
