Cannot see the forest for the trees

Blindly racing forward

Like a deer in the headlights

Collision followed by collision

Waves of nausea passing over

Cannot stop the trembling


Helpful remedies only numb the edges

Soften the blow

But maybe that is OK

Maybe it is OK

To feel like this


Because like I said once before

Being alive is

Feeling everything

The good, the bad and the anxiety

      Those singing tapes are like music to my ears compared to my Kopfkino!

      Good to see you back.
      Sorry you're a bit down.
      Anxiety is debilitating, hope you bounce back quickly.

        Thanks Paul. I am fine, just a lot of change going on right now. But I am happy to feel it all, even the bad stuff 🙂 Honestly.

        'Helpful remedies only numb the edges'
        when we are wading, knee deep
        in debilitating, anxiety
        being gifted, a little room
        to manoeuvre, to catch our breath
        and recover
        some semblance of normalcy
        is enough...
        (such a relatable read
        and so well written, thanks for sharing
        dear Poet)
