It is nothing

I am pouring my coffee,
I feel my face tingling.
It will be alright, it is nothing.
I see my coffee cup,
I must concentrate.
I don’t seem to be able to pour this cup.
Of course I can.
Concentrate, concentrate.
Alright, look at the cup
Slowly, slowly,
Good girl you did it.
It will be alright, it is nothing.
I hear , but everyone is talking from a distance.
Listen better.
Concentrate concentrate.
Good girl you did it.
I hear you,
I just can’t quite understand.
Say it again,
I will get it this time.
I am confused.
What was I saying? What did you say?
Concentrate concentrate.
Oh no!
I feel like I am dropping in the well.
I don’t want to go in the well.
The well is far away from you.
I must concentrate.
Everyone sounds so far away.
I am trying so hard to stay.
It will be alright, it is nothing.
I’m sorry, I can’t hold on.
I must leave for a few minutes,
But I’ll come back, just hold on.
Don’t be frightened, don’t be sad.
I will be alright, it is nothing.
I’m sorry.
Please don’t treat me differently.
I really am like you,
I just go in the well sometimes.
I’m alright I will concentrate.
Next time it will be different,
Next time I won’t have to leave.
I must concentrate.
It will be alright, it is nothing.
