To My Anxiety


I am panicking

I am barely breathing

My vision is blurry

My memory is hazy

You knocked on my door

And I allowed you in

My body is trembling

I am pacing back and forth

I am barely breathing

I have to keep myself together

I cannot stay like this forever


I step back and close my eyes

I bestowed myself into Nothing

Hoping that something will

Help me find my balance.

I am in a trance


I hear my breath.

I hear the distant helicopter

I hear the birds singing

I hear the cars passing

I hear the wind howling


I open my eyes and exhale

I can do this


I cannot let you into my life when you please

I will not longer allow that agonizing tease


Not today dear friend

Not today.
