I was wracked with anxiousness-
The same overwhelming sensation that attacks your body and mind
When you bring your lips in contact with the sticky rim of a cup
Funneling out spirals of hot content warning signs
You try to cool down the situation staring you straight in the face
By puffing out blows of chilling air to numb the subject
It starts to become too much, however,
The anxiousness of finishing what you started and you dive straight in
Closing your eyes to allow the flaming contents fill your mouth to the brink of explosion
Then it is over.
You dive in for another sip in case the first time was just a laugh
Then you realize that the heat has not yet subsided
Allow yourself time to recover before you ruin it all,
With one anxious mistake.
