A Poem by Daniel Atkinson
"

Anxiety

"
jabbering meddling rabble rousing mind 
I am eternal 
I am scared 
I am scratched & scarred 
I am twisting pulling hair eyes spewing 
tears crow's feet shining wet 
heart pumps kicks me 
is hot scampers in fire 
burns blood fries brain 
I can't think I can only fear I can't think I can only fear 

I AM LOSING MY MIND BETWEEN PAINTED WALLS
 
when I sleep I dream of fear & when I don't 
I stare at the dark & feel my body decay & lessen & shrink 
I stand in the morning put my feet on a cold floor 
and move through static heat of day 

my mind doesn't sleep my mind 
my mind screams it screams for me 
it screams.

A harrowing example of what it's like to deal with anxiety. Very well done my friend.
