That feeling of not being able to breathe
That feeling of wanting the pain to leave
Rolling up my sleeve
To fight for my sanity
To win the war against anxiety
Not knowing what’s inside of me
Emotions wrapped up in a blanket of fear
Fear of what resides in my mind
Things that are not so kind
I am being mean to myself
Just … Stop it
I’m calm now
I forget what I was crying about
Just like that
Sounds psychotic to me
Address the fucking problem!
It’s not that deep
But it is
And you can’t swim
That’s why you are drowning
