My friend, Soxy

My friend, Soxy

A Poem by Liz Alexander
"

Some days being social is hard, meet my friend Soxy and see the craziness he causes me to act.

"
It happens in an instant
My friend has appeared again
ITs not a person really more like a mode
I can be in a place talking,
Next thing I know stepping into another room
I have lost my voice

My good friend Soxy strikes again
Soxy is my good friend Social Anxiety
When it appears,
I tend to wander
Either on foot or in my car
When I wander
I am never sure where I am going

Soxy sometimes cramps my style
If I even have one
It either pulls me into a place
where its hard to speak or if I do
I talk too much

I have learned that it can seem rude
And its not like I don't want to talk to you
I lose all courage to talk
Even in saying hi
I just start to wander
These moments I am fighting within

There is something inside screaming to talk
But my courage is gone
And my face is blank
Not very inviting

This is something I am working on
To beat soxy out of my life
Soxy has been in and out of my life
For a while
It knows me so well
So meet my friend, Soxy
