In Pursuit of Reason

a single setback prelude to an avalanche health, friendships, property, finances lay buried in angst, waiting for a thaw life gone awry paranoia intrudes beast with talons scrapes the bones behind each corner it waits chameleon of many faces anxiety’s confusing design apprehension overcomes the victim when perceiving camouflaged predators who goes there friend or foe stomach knots, eyes tear prey trembles in the beast’s pursuit elusive is the light that leads from the valley of trepidation where tentacles of anxiety choke the breath of reason

    Great description. It's the most crippling thing I've ever experienced and the only time I've ever been truly afraid.

    Anxiety can drive one mad for sure, Mrs Carolyn. Probably one reason so many Americans smoke marijuana. It clouds reality. Very well written as usual:)

    Carolyn, this is so dark and so desperate but a better definition I don't believe could be found anywhere. This poem goes deep and reveals the pain, the confusion and the paranoia associated with anxiety. This is so good. You are extremely talented.
