Hey, anxiety how are you today? Won’t you stop by and say hello. Thoughts magnified. I can’t turn it off. Fear crawling under my skin, burrowing itself. I’m here to stay. The possible, now impossible. Nothing seems simple it’s all so complicated. I can’t figure out how to uncomplicate the collision course you have set me on. My heart racing, crashing, sputtering, barely holding on, a fraction of its power. I took a breath and suffocated in frustration. Look at me now, barefoot, wandering around in a frequency so dark. Aimless. Endless. Collapsing within myself.
