Frantic

via Daily Prompt: Frantic 

Frantic: wild or distraught with fear, anxiety, or other emotion.

——

My mind. 

The wheels spinning in my head,

relentlessly.

My body.

Fighting back with everything it has,

living.

My lungs.

Gasping for air as polluted as my thoughts,

suffocating. 

My loved ones. 

Bailing out a sinking ship,

determined. 

Anxiety. 

Like a creature lurking in the dark,

an ambush. 

The numbers.

That corrode my thoughts,

inescapable.

The feelings,

Endlessly warring for control,

destructive.

The future.

burning holes in my present, 

gnawing away at my peace. 

The light. 

Despite it all, peaking through the cracks,

of my boarded-up self, 

persisting.
