On safe ground

There are moments when
Being seen or cared for
You meet relief

Where your body feels safe
Nothing’s coming
That’s when it starts shaking

It’s circulating fear, grief or tension
Held in in freeze

The state an animal goes through
Minutes after an encounter with a predator
It just took you 40 years
To release the latter

So when all gets good
And you feel despair
It’s your body knowing
It can finally repair

You are on Safe ground
Shaking it all off
