I have pretty severe anxiety pretty much everyday and this felt cathartic to write. I'm posting it here anonymously because that same anxiety prevents me from sharing it with people that know me.

A love letter to my anxiety

You are the sound of thunder

Blood in my ears. Tachycardic.

The color wine; warm like winter nights.

Six years old and already broken

You are the racing river in my chest

The stop in my breath. Panic.

Shelter like old forts; cold and impenetrable.

Fourteen years old and already broken.

You are the dust that gathers on my smile

A bookshelf forgotten. Unneeded.

The taste of copper; chewed fingers and bruised lips

Twenty-one years old and already broken.

You are the justice declaring my fear

An unseen specter. Desperate.

A hurricane of insecurities;

Twenty-eight and still broken.
