... Anxiety, Just Another Revival

Anxiety, Just another rival

It messes with my mind, It messes with my survival

Never fading always increasing

Been seeing a shrink for years now yet nothing seems to be releasing

My happiness is often disappearing upon your arrival

Constantly wondering what i did to deserve such denial

I guess it's time to admit to myself that love is just a trial

Something that comes & goes like the hours in a day

As often as i pray i never seem to get one to stay

Unsure of who to blame

I always leave myself in shame

Thinking over the things i could've changed

...the way our kisses were exchanged

...the way our dates were arranged

...but then again i find myself moving on unchanged
