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 — 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!
