he fell screaming.

arms flapping wildly,
legs tangling with air.

his father - and the Gods -
the only witness to his descent.
all the breath left his body as soon
as the water encased him.
the wails of Daedalus echoed
throughout an empty landscape.

he fell screaming
but died in silence

OH MY GOD

I’ve been reading a lot of myths lately, and I feel for the ones we’re telling stories about.
I wonder what Icarus must have felt when he took that first draft of air up into the clouds.
I wonder what Echo felt when she saw Narcissus for the first time.
Was Icarus free?
Was Echo in love?
Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if they met.
You see, they know what it’s like to want something.
I wonder what Icarus felt when he tried to kiss the sun.
I wonder what Echo felt the moment Narcissus saw her.
Then Icarus touched the water and Echo vanished into the air, and I still wonder.
Why do I continue stretching out my hands when yours are closed?

panic/anxiety attack

jaspinder:

  • breath in for 4 seconds
  • hold your breath for 7 seconds
  • exhale breath for 8 seconds

repeat once or twice more.

This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.

Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.

Never not reblog

Tumblr got anxiety advice. Fuck yeah.

Read this earlier, and it helped me a lot tonight.
