anxiety

you forget where it started
you don't know where it will end


you're trapped in a tunnel that simultaneously narrows and w i d e n s


your awareness narrows


while your thoughts w i d e n
until they lose all sense


one thought careens into another


snowball effect


until your mind threatens to collapse under the weight


it is all you can do to push back against it

 

you are the sisyphus of your own mythos, forever condemned to fighting an uphill battle with your heavy, leaden thoughts

 

nearly reaching the top
where you could finally release the weight

 

where you could finally rest

 

only to fall right back to the start

 

and begin the struggle again

    despite its sobering topic
    and somewhat, downbeat tone
    I found this to be an enjoyable read..
    a wonderfully expressive portrayal
    of the frustrations and anxieties
    we all have to deal with
    at some point in our lives..
    wonderfully worded, thanks for sharing
