CPR/First Aid

I realized what it is about emergencies
That produces such panic in me:
When I give you breaths, I become your lungs.
When I push your chest so hard your ribs break,
I become your heart beat.
When I stop your blood flow, I am
Keeping your very life inside of you.
No amount of training or exposure
Can prepare me for moments of such intimacy.
