Toxic State

Immobilized by trepidation like a prisoner on the rack An imagined consternation From another anxiety attack Constant state of dissipation From perceived things I lack A complete liquidation Making a weary insomniac Like a slow and steady ablation Like a stoic, reserved maniac

Steady, powerful, drum-beating read, Trey! The hard "K" sounds ending every other line - oh YEAH.

I hadn't see your poem before the end of the contest. But it speaks to me. I sometimes feel like a prisoner of the issues you describe, so your poem, I can relate to it. Congratulations!
