Mr anxiety man knocked on your door



Mr. Anxiety man knocked on your door,
you opened, and there he was. 
You slammed the door and then you realize he was still there. 
He looked you in the eye, he watched you run, 
you tried to hide. 
Your heart almost stopped, 
you tried to scream, 
but your anxiety made you freeze. 
You have faced the beast before, 
but now before you managed to close the door, 
he got his foot inside, again. 
You closed your eyes and feelings, 
to tell yourself that this is just your imagination, 
your mind is just playing with you, but for you it's real! 
You feel that he comes creeping up from behind and takes over you body, 
your body starts to shiver as if he were a ghost, 
your internal fights resumes, you fight for your life inside. 
This is all his fault, the Mr. Anxiety man! 
You are blaming him for that your tears taste so salty. 
He transforms the finest rose to a faded stalk. 
You will kill him in the end, you're just not ready yet. 
Then it will be quiet again. 
You've killed him once before!
Shhhh!

    oh how true!! When Mr. Anxiety man comes pounding at your door, he could be pretty relentless! I like how you approached anxiety here and that line "He transforms the finest rose to a faded stalk" was really great! Btw, just want to help, I think there's a missing "y" for "salty in the line before the one about the finest rose..... I hope all is well with you Laila :D hugs :D
