to perish


after half a year of treatment

my psychiatrist says

the primal fear has paused its preying on you


i repeat the sentence many times


the ps and rs

pop and roll

in my head


the intrusive thoughts

are calming down,

they no longer create any static

in my chest and stomach


i do everything

that they proposed during my therapies,

which were injected with

diluted eastern philosophy


i gain weight,

but at least i can blame it on the medication,

which i would gladly gulp down mountains of

and become gargantua



          so my soul and body

          never part again
