Anxiety

monumentmonument

Fear of loss

Hot, stinging peppers in my chest

Shallow breath

Fear of loss

Terrified

Only fear and worry

Only no

Life please don’t leave me

Laughter, love, where has the sun gone?

Lightness, airiness, come back to me

I don’t want to live here in this dungeon

It’s dank, cold, frightening

Help me

Help me out of here

I belong in the sun with crystal waters running

With the sounds of waves crashing on white beaches

Take the weight off my chest and let me breathe

Let me out of the dungeon

Evaporate

  1. Wow – what a powerful, evocative poem – you capture anxiety as well as its total opposite so well!

    I’d like to be here…

    “I belong in the sun with crystal waters running

    With the sounds of waves crashing on white beaches”

    right now!!!
