Turmoil

Wide awake in the middle of the night 
Nothing stirs except my fright. 

Sweat devours my face 
As I hunt for my pill case. 

Anxiety is a monster---A savage beast 
Who always takes his time to feast. 

I cannot find my pill. 
I will never feel tranquil. 

What is it like to feel right 
And not have the inner turmoil bite?
