Patrick Mc Manus


to help her
after her
hard day
at work
they took to
role playing
the tense moments
threatening situations
that sort of thing
but one day
sometime later
terribly injured
awfully scarred
touch and go
he woke up
in intensive care
on a drip
they then
thought that
perhaps she
could learn
some nice relaxing
breathing exercises
