Anxiety

Locked away within myself I feel a peace of mind,
That among the noise and chaos of the world I cannot find.
Inside my place it’s quiet and the walls are thick as lead,
“No thing can ever harm me when I hide inside my head”.

But sometimes there’s a fissure and that fissure forms a crack,
And the walls begin to weaken and I can’t pick up the slack.
The noise and chaos of the world start forcing it’s way through,
And no matter how much I may fight, there’s nothing I can do.

The pressure there starts rising, slowly taking all the air,
Drums in my heart start pounding, faster than I’d ever dare.
My stomach starts to feel as though it’s twisted in a knot,
I battle, barely breathing, fighting it with all I’ve got.

I struggle to find something that could patch the growing hole,
I look to find a constant, and it stays my only goal.
I merely need an anchor that will weigh down all my fears,
But I am growing weaker, the hole widened by my tears.

Broken up and beaten, I choose my last resort,
To simply let it tear me down and then rebuild my fort.
I slowly search the rubble and begin to stack the lead,
“No thing can ever harm me when I hide inside my head”.
