Today I awoke in a cloud of terror,
I could not bring myself to look in the mirror.
In the kitchen the bottle rattled in my hand,
I take the capsule and all my fears dissolve to sand.
Do I leave the house today,
Will I be able to find my way.
Curl up into a ball of absolute worry,
Feeling the need to spurt out that you are sorry.
Repeatedly your world spins around,
You stumble through life wondering when you will hit the ground.
The tension rises the walls close in,
You never can tell where to begin.
Anxiety is a mounting thing filling you up,
So lost in your mind as you drain your coffee cup.
