It was a struggle at first
But now my old friend visits
Again and again
Leaving me helpless in pain
Food becomes foe
And nights a sweaty drench
Laughter leaves the soul
Eyes are fogged and blank
I learn to laugh again
Like emerging from a black hole
Learning to see again
Stronger I am and more confident
It will come again I know
But it’ll never take me back
“Ode To Anxiety” is another awesome poem by DentMistry who hadn’t written for a while but I’m so glad she’s writing again! It’s so relatable and descriptive and really captures what having anxiety feels like. As most of you are probably aware, I too suffer from anxiety. Anxiety is difficult to deal with. And as mentioned in the poem it comes and goes so you are never sure when it is going to strike you. Sometimes it takes you by surprise when you are at your lowest. Let me know what you thought of “Ode To Anxiety” in the comments below.
