Sleeping Over My Anxiety

Sleeping Over My Anxiety

A Story by Diksha

Me trying to pen down my mind and thoughts on anxiety.


Sometimes, I sleep with my anxiety,

Other times, I sleep with my sadness and happiness dancing together hand in hand, kissing and making love.

There are times when I dream of people,

Where some are known and others are unknown,

Some are very close and some are not even close to close.

My mind start to chase all the nightmares I am afraid of, abandoning the good thoughts which might result in something good and colourful,

There are days, when I don’t know what I really want from my life.

If today, I seem happy that’s because I am sleeping properly and trying to deal with my own mind proudly with all my courage.

I fail sometimes, and those are the days when I try to avoid all the possible human or social contact and get inside my own little shell.

I run away from everything that has the tendency to care and get curious to know the reason behind my fatigue presence,

I pray to fall asleep but my mind doesn’t allow me to rest in peace,

It’s scary and miserable to fight your own mind,

And go to the world where my mind works, without my control..

But then, like me, lot of other humans are surviving this phase, Everyday.

Coz they deny to let this phase of wintry blues overshadow the springs of their shining and blooming personalities.

So, like all of them, even I won’t let this anxiety win over my mind,

I will fight,

I will try,

Until I finally FLY.
