Napowrimo 2018 Day 6

Hello Readers,

Welcome to day 6 of my NaPoWriMo poetry writing challenge. As I myself and many people I know suffer with anxiety, I decided to base today's poem on anxiety.

Anxiety

I wake like still water,
Then the next minute,
It's turned to tar,
And I'm stuck in it,
I struggle to breathe,
As it laces around my throat,
I try my best to leave,
But I can't even float,
It creeps under my skin,
Like a surgical knife,
And I know I can't win,
This tormenting strife,
I tremble with vibrations,
When I'm finally out,
With long paused hesitations,
As I struggle to get about,
A million thoughts and pictures,
Running through my mind,
Like permanent fixtures,
Buried far down inside,
All of a sudden its gone,
Clouds lifting from my eyes,
But I know it won't be long,
Until returns,
The creature I despise.

Thanks for reading,
Louise.
