Anxiety

by katelynadair

I hear the dog's bark before I see the headlights, a yip that somehow reverberates through what's left of my skull.

I wonder what it will be this time.

I feel the bile rise in my throat, my hands shaking in a preemptive attempt to save what little I have left.

I think I remember seeing stars as beautiful as I once was, but I cannot be sure.

I can remember wanting to be a ray of light, wanting to be delicate in the way a shard of glass was; a stained piece of a larger mosaic.

Maybe today I will.
