Anxiety - Poem by Tygrr Robertson

Chest grows heavier
with each exhaust of my breath
Intolerable weight looms over
like an uncertain death
Unfocused and frenzied
thoughts blaze through my mind
Attacking and wrenching
something must be maligned

Unreasonable fears paralyze
and tear away at my pride
Hard to move forward
when I’m just along for the ride
The world spins around
as I sit frozen in time
Within this invisible cell
to an unknowable crime

With eyes squeezed shut
I beg my mind for silence
Seeking some sort of shelter
from this internal violence
Clenched jaw I push forward,
fight back and persist
Wake up to regret
all the things that I’ve missed
