Breathing Peace

We breathe together,

in and out.

My breaths start to slow as I feel you match yours to mine.

My racing thoughts quiet as you stop shaking.

Two panicked people longing for home,

two pairs of sick lungs breathing peace into each other.

I am safe here.

Your lips soothe

and your body softens the edges of mine.

Your arms protect

and your warmth quiets my restless mind.

I am safe here.

I can sleep once more.
