Anxiety

My skin is burns underneath the surface,

Ants crawling up and down,

Setting fire to every cell in my body

And an uncontrollable itch and pain

In an unreachable place.

 

I claw at my skin,

Talons tearing the skin to shreds,

Blood pours from my wounds,

Yet there is no relief

The anguish I feel.

 

My heart beats faster,

Breathing gets heavier

With every passing moment

Desperate to feel more,

To feel more than never-ending pain.

 

My skin dangles from muscle,

Tendons twitching from the fresh air

And tears that pour from my cheeks,

Blood drips to the floor, but all this pain

Led to no eternal relief,

As I know there will be a resurgence of pain.

 

 

Short Poetry

Poem #1

I couldn’t imagine,

Couldn’t create,

Because anxiety shook

My hands

And I couldn’t

Control thoughts

From my head.

 

Poem #2

I need nothing from you,

No emotion or soul or touch.

Give me nothing to give me everything.

 

Poem #3

A thousand needles,

A frail and innocent creature,

Nature does not nurture.
