Stress - Poem by Alexis James

if this were stress,
then it's the worst

tired all the time
feel bloated all day
force feeding myself

feel like throwing up
after every meal, sheesh
barely finished my lunch
dinner wasn't even better

scared to take the Ikot
it's dark and i'm alone
yet I feel like
I can't make it if
walking was an option

so i took the jeepney
scared when to death
when left as only passenger
thinking that something may
happen, something bad, so
bad I won't see
