Alone Together

Woman sits alone on rock, looking at sunset.

I closed my eyes to try and get some space
to clear my head
but all I found was pressure pushing
on my heart
chest so tight, eyes and nose running
I hurt, panic rose

and then into my head came this image
of your arms
wrapped around me and holding
in close embrace
I ran my fingers across your cheek and
the feeling passed

so simple an image I held in my mind
of you, there
but all at once it made my pulse calm
and slow again
as even absent you anchor me and
I save myself
