Your Ringing Name

You drown my thoughts

Make it impossible for me to do everyday tasks

I can't go to the store and buy a single thing

The feeling of your weight on my shoulders stops me

You follow me wherever i go 

It's impossible to escape your strong grasp

When i go to starbucks a wave of dreadd washes over me

Because i know you'll choke me if i dare to speak, my heart

it beats fast

I think it's time we go our seperate ways

But you'll never let me go, no matter how hard I try to escape you

You always find me in the dark corners, cowarding away

You only bring me down

I feel as if the ground beneath me is breaking

You're just waiting to push me

I know I'm not the only one, you've done this to my friends

You turn their blooming minds into dry, brittle, and cracked flower petals

Leave us, you make us drown ourselves in misery

Anxiety, your name rings in my mind

It makes my heart ache
