feels like

sometimes it feels like
a cave-in crushing my chest;
other times, scraped thin

reminder

sometimes terror sinks
its dull claws into your soul
just remember: breathe


untitled, august 2015

I want to scream. To cry
To fight
To kick out against the rage
before it eats me whole.
Drowned in the bile of my own self-loathing
I burn and melt away
into puddles of foam

Smothered in something silent, a sadness
Lungs cannot breathe
Blood cannot course
All fades away to a blinding light,
piercing heart with jagged lances,
leaving nothing but bare ash and powdered bone
–a terrible memory of me


Anxiety

Frozen limbs
A marble granite monster
with thought
A walking vegetative mess
i see you
i know you
i feel you
and feeling chills my blood

A poison strong and crippling
Solidifying my veins
cholesterol of the mind
Thinking Slowing Hardening
Trapped in your own skin
Unable to breathe
Unable to move
Unable to eat away
Starvation
Or to sleep away
Exhaustion

For each baby step carve
Yourself out of the
mountainside of air
Oppressing
Squashing into jelly
legs that no longer work

A tension so bittersweet for
The Opposite
lies only with death
