My Crazy Mind

Anxiety, my long lost friend.

My anxiety will be the death of me. 

Someone please stop the noise inside my head.

Stop the screaming.

I can't move.

I'm paralyzed by my own mind.

I can't think straight.

I can't talk.

Please don't sit so close to me.

Please just let me be.

I cannot handle being touched,

But your touch is all I want.

Please just hold me close.

Never let me go.

Please silence my loud mind.

I can feel the walls closing in around me.

I can feel everything falling apart. 

There is no one here to save me. 

There is no one to fix my mind. 

My anxiety will be the death of me. 

If I'm not careful, 

It's sure to stop my heart.
