The Repercussions of Anxiety


smiling faces
shifting eyes
I let my hair fall in front of my face
as a blanket to hide my rosy cheeks
I feel weak
and it's happening again

breathing increases
heart at full pace
everything's aching
I start to shake
wanting it to lessen
I'm looking for the exits
wishing to disappear

apathetic
I'm safe and sound
the blur may have passed
but it left the girl nobody wants around
withheld conversations
I'm playing hide and seek
somewhere stuck in my own head
you wouldn't recognize me
recovery
takes one or two days
another 48 hours stuck in here with you
