Living In Anxiety

Welcome to my house

Where walls shake

And windows break

Black cats walk along cracks

On their hind legs

Hands wind faster

And time evaporates


I lay in bed at night

Wide awake

Trapped in the circles

of my mind…

A dizzying dance of shadows

Against the smallest shed of light


Fears crawl out of cupboards

And monsters hover

Feeding on the lies

Of their sisters and brothers

Wreaking havoc

As I exist in two states:

Tremors and shudders.


Locked in my house

Will I ever escape?

I can’t measure the moment.

I can only count the days.
