I have Anxiety

I have anxiety
My lights are on at 4 AM
And I can’t sleep because I am worried about not sleeping
My doctor told me that I don’t need medicine
Because it doesn’t affect my life enough
And I was too anxious to explain that I need the stuff
I can’t function in society
Large crowds make me shrink away
I can’t breathe
I can’t keep the thoughts away
I have anxiety
My mind won’t take care of me
It’s like a nagging monster
Always reinforcing things, I already know
Reinforcing fears I don’t want to show
I can’t function in society
I haven’t slept in two days
I am afraid to fall asleep
The hours it takes are filled with past regrets
Self blame, self hate
I am afraid to be alone with my thoughts
I am afraid of my mind
