a n x iety

Something's not right.
It's sudden and sinister.
Making my chest feel tight,
an unwelcome visitor.

Suddenly my heart
beats beats beats
I’m going to fall apart
I want this to cease.

I know it's all in my mind.
So why does it feel so real?
Leaving me confined.
my achilles’ heel.

Then it goes away
but i know it’ll be back
because it’s there everyday.
