14th

free verse

Advertisements

Head down,

Ears ringing,

Palms – and all – sweating,

Legs shaking.

This is anxiety:

A neck that won’t hold the weight,

A high-pitched, never-ending tone,

A heat that creeps too close,

And a fear of being stuck still.

But now,

I am liberated –

Free to keep my head up,

Free to sing instead of listening to hell hounds,

Free to breathe,

Free to move on forevermore.
