Getting into a warm bath

There was a moment (as I slid into a warm scented bath) that I felt I was being wrapped into a warm caressing cosy blanket and the water took the weight of my achy legs as they floated in the warmth.

After working through a huge piece of casework

There was a moment today as I was walking home when I thought back over the afternoon’s work and realised that having got a huge piece of casework done the corners of my mouth like they were turned up just that little bit and I felt taller.

Hands around my neck

There was a moment today when I was rejected after another job assessment centre that invisible hands slowly squeezed around my neck and acid lingered in my throat.

Black sludge filled my the flesh

Electric sparks, poking fingers and hugging heat

There was a moment today after reading a job description (that looked like it was made for me) that electric sparks ignited from my core and skittered down my arms and legs. Fingers poked my my eyebrows upward, air gasped into my lungs as if a vacuum sucked it in and a heat hugged my heart making it beat faster.

A layer of fluff and detaching consciousness

There was a moment a few days ago when sitting on a train after a long day at a job assessment centre that a layer of fluff consumed me dulling the noise of everything and I saw myself leaning against the window as if my consciousness detached from my body.

When I felt everything was out of control

There was a moment today when I felt what I would describe as panicky which I would describe physically as dizziness, nausea, a tight gripping sensation in my chest and sweaty. Even harder to describe is the feeling that my mind was literally racing ahead of my body’s physical capabilities.

Cotton brain and jiggly lead
