A Poem by PandaPeaceful

Anxiety.

It consumes you.

Rapidly.

Suddenly.

You look

Th-th-thumping heart.

Racing thoughts.

You feel everything.

You hear everything.

And yet,

you see nothing.


Covered by INSECURITIES,

Questioning your smile,

Your w a l k , your EATING.

Is this even anxiety?

“Overreacting.”

“Like always.”

Maybe this is ALL in my

head

Out. OUt. OUT.

Get OUT.


Walking down a street,

thinking everyone is looking at

you.

JUDGING

you.

“Narcissist”

“Self-centered”

“Weird”

Stupid thoughts.

Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.


Dishonest voices

Superficial faces

Mean murmurs


A whimpering smile

A tired sigh

A broken “hi”

“Pathetic”

“Weak”

“Incapable”


I crack.

We break.

As the title entails, it's "complicated".

Just awesome, really. I like your styling choices to emphasize certain words and influence their effect in each stanza. It reflects the title accurately and also helps the reader feel the complexity in the poem.
