Frozen Noose

Anxiety (The Worst Noose In Town) -- like flooding waters, creeping in I count 30, seconds, holding my breath again Drowning in agitation, overwhelmed by fear I try to hide the pressure in hopes I don't pass out My pores are soaked, from all the perspiration I feel the pins and needles pushing in My skin is ruined from all the peeling At this point, I can't seem to win Washed out by dead hope and desire My soul is lost searching for a shore leashing, grasping and ripping the chest wide I count 40, seconds, once nausea can't be blocked Everything about this moment is driving me mad, I need to escape, however, my knees are too weak I tremble while losing control to the emotional distress My knuckles are pale, detached from reality, wounds forced with further embarrassment. Guaranteed failure surrounds my day Numbness strikes my very essence - I can't move! Lost in a room, Therapy - even so I feel singled out HAPPY VALENTINES (it can get the best of us) ---------------------------- love Linda

I feel this one! I love the line - "My knuckles are pale, detached from reality, wounds forced with further embarrassment." Some memorable ones throughout but I find that one most unique. There's much to be anxious about in this world we live in...the anxiety is crippling, strangling. Well done. Love always, Laura

intense, em.otional, terrifying Life is not always wonderful. There are those times it can break us but these are the times we must fight and come out stronger. I feel the pain and I want to take it from you. I love this type of poetry

Not sure if I have ever read anything of yours that affected me as this write does! I think this is about my 10th time reading it and it still feels like the first! Wanted to stop in and re-read some of your work and say hello my friend

I really like this piece. Full of emotion and paints a rather accurate picture of depression. Looking forward to reading the rest of your work.
