    Anxiety is a dreadful. it does not allow correct judgement. having said that TS Elliott said anxiety is the precursor of poetry, or words to that effect. Descent poem. You appear to be a fellow sufferer

    I just read Anxiety, and I found it to be an intense and honest poem. It evokes sympathy and empathy and does so does so, through imagery and word play. I would suggest avoiding words like like. Impressive, nevertheless.

Best Poem of Kaitlin Schmidt


Standing still, feet planted
Body frozen, mind racing
Fear takes over
Like another entity
That controls all

It pleasures in knowing
No advancement has taken place
Nothing has been overcome just stillness

It delights in knowing
How much power it has
Over that insecure body
Manipulation will be easy

Soon anxiety sets in
Causing the body to tremble
The more intense the trembling becomes
The more the certainty declines

As the body gets sucked down
The path of anxiety
Fear becomes overjoyed
Its job is done

That little...

Read the full of Anxiety


The loneliness you feel is all to familiar.
There is a slight comfort in knowing you have experienced this before
And will experience it again.
However, that thought scares you for it seems you can never escape it.
It will always be there haunting you as a shadow behind you.
Abandonment feels natural.
You can not comfort yourself no matter how hard you try.
The distance you keep from others is comfortable
And getting closer is unthinkable.
