Anxiety‌ ‌and‌ ‌Me‌ [A Poem]

Anxiety‌ ‌and‌ ‌me,‌ ‌or‌ ‌do‌ ‌you‌ ‌disagree?‌

Endless‌ ‌panic‌ ‌attacks‌ ‌and‌ ‌dread‌

It‌ ‌means‌ ‌I ‌really‌ ‌struggle‌ ‌to‌ ‌go‌ ‌bed‌


Constantly‌ ‌worrying‌ ‌about‌ ‌“dizzy‌ ‌spells”‌

The‌ ‌feeling‌ ‌like‌ ‌I’m‌ ‌floating‌ ‌I’m‌ ‌in‌ ‌a‌ ‌middle‌ ‌of‌ ‌a‌ ‌stormy‌ ‌sea‌

Anxiety‌ ‌and‌ ‌me‌

Even‌ ‌the‌ ‌palms‌ ‌of‌ ‌my‌ ‌hands‌ ‌are‌ ‌crying‌

Why‌ ‌does‌ ‌it‌ ‌feel‌ ‌like‌ ‌I’m‌ ‌dying‌

Anxiety‌ ‌and‌ ‌me‌

I‌ ‌don’t‌ ‌know‌ ‌why‌

It‌ ‌makes‌ ‌no‌ ‌sense‌

I‌ ‌just‌ ‌want‌ ‌to‌ ‌feel‌ ‌something‌ ‌less‌ ‌intense‌

Breathe‌ ‌in‌ ‌and‌ ‌breathe‌ ‌out‌

I’ll‌ ‌be‌ ‌fine‌ ‌without‌ ‌a‌ ‌doubt‌

Anxiety‌ ‌and‌ ‌me‌

I’m‌ ‌getting‌ ‌there,‌ ‌but‌ ‌where?‌

I‌ ‌know‌ ‌that‌ ‌people‌ ‌care‌

Breathe‌ ‌in…‌ ‌1,2,3‌

Anxiety‌ ‌and‌ ‌me‌
