anxiety - emotional series pt 1
it's a quiet sort of conquest,
when fear, apprehension & dread all meet.
when it begins, there's only a nervous pulsing
running through your veins, out of control
like you might be sort of drunk.
but then the beast wakens inside of you,
like a hive of angry hornets, stirring in their nest.
they are alive inside you, jostling in your stomach,
stinging & knotting within.
they fly upwards-- your heart begins to pound madly,
for it's being crowded, pressed in upon by the horror
that is the mass of furious hornets.
they fly up upwards-- your throat closes off,
you're choking on your own words, finding breath is
they fly upwards-- spots that are their whirring bodies
break your vision into unfamiliar shapes.
things grow dark suddenly, you fight them but it seems only
a matter of time until you are overcome.
there's a buzzing in your veins,
they fly wherever they want now.
