A Collection of Anxious Thoughts

A Collection of Anxious Thoughts

A Poem by Ashe Conten

They're looking at me
They're staring
They're looking 
They're judging 

They're lying to me
They're manipulating me
They're lying
They're leaving

What is wrong with me?
What the hell am I so afraid of?
Everything 
Everything is wrong with me because I am afraid of everything.

He panics
He's shaking
He is afraid of me
What the hell is he so afraid of?

the poem is good and expresses a movie-like anxious being quite well. Your ending had me thinking why don't you write a stanza or two looking at an anxious being in a crowded place like you tried express here. What I mean by that is change the perspective of your reader. Just a suggestion that I think would add depth to the poem.

But it is well written this way aswell
thanks for sharing

I like this poem :) I actually suffer from panic and anxiety attacks, so I can relate to this character a lot. I'm always afraid people are judging me for freaking out or talking about me (but it turns out they're usually not and are actually genuinely worried about me). I think you captured this feeling/situation really well.

It's not fun, I think we can agree on that. I'm glad I could connect with you : )
Cobfusion, agony, emotion. An enjoyable read. Thank you for sharing.
