ANXIETY

My closest friend these days

I have this thing in me

people call it

A

I

E

Y

sometimes my heart forgets its functions

stops, slows and races for some reasons

air rushes in and out

no words to figure-out

the stomach adds to the show

forges its anger, all in a row

my mind acts cool though

it goes numb

like there's no way to go

my last two brain cells in a corner

figure things out like a foreigner

At the last, I surrender

to my own weapons

it's scary, those 60 seconds

yet before I rest my case

let me embrace my face

it's the only one that acts the same

no eyebrow arches

no folds on the skin

no discoloration

not even a hint

like a close friend

keeps the secret till the end

Because;

I have this thing in me

people call it

A

N

X

I

E

T

Y

    I had anxiety so bad I was pulled out of high school by my doctor, so I know the feeling all too well. Fortunately I rarely get it now. Just when something big is about to happen, good or bad. Congrats on your first Top Story, and here’s to many more! 🥂

    "my last two brain cells in a corner, figure things out like a foreigner." Sometimes a line from a writers mind reaches out and demands that you read it again and again until it digs deep down inside you and moves you somehow. This is Poetry at its best and you have done that here!! Congrats on a well deserved Top Story. You have a new subscriber.

    Anxiety is definitely a deception. It’s a battlefield we have to conquer
