Friendship with Anxiety ~

hurtling towards the ground.

my palms forget the calm.

the steady rhythm when i press them to my chest.

my heart beats like rain during a storm.

pounding against pavement.

my lungs forget the deepness. the calm breaths that fill my chest full.

and my mind โ€” oh, how it forgets to slow.

always running to escape the rain.

never stopping to notice the clouds.

how they glide so peacefully even in the midst of a storm.

i stepped cautiously in front of my mirror to find a girl with swollen eyes dressed in armor, protecting her body from the sting of the words i had been throwing at her for years.

i didn’t realize how much damage i caused until i saw her dented shield and trembling arms.

but she never surrendered, never threw her shield down in defeat.

in her, i saw resilience.

i’m sorry, i pleaded. can you forgive me?

a girl waiting patiently for change.

anxiety, looks back in the mirror

Your mine!

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
