Anxiety

The fear inside screaming out loud
You find yourself in the middle of pain
Looking for that tiny little shroud
Of hope…keeping you steady and sane

Torn up… on the deep of your insides
Causing your heart to feel panicked
Your mind going on roller coaster rides
You find yourself feeling quite manic

Struggling…not able to breathe in and out
The pressure on your shoulders hold you down
Teetering on what is real or what it’s all about
You feel like your under…ready to drown

The Haze In The Night

A glimmer of the moon shows like milk in a glass
Fog drifting across the road like it has legs
Humidity curling the little hairs at your neck
Your sight diminished by the creeping of the ground clouds

An owl beckons at it nightly meal…” Hoot hoot”
Impossible to see him through the shadows of the night
Foggy headlights travel on the highway to hell
Hard to tell if you are closer to “Almost there”

A coyote howls at the night moon
Scavenging for a meal that was slain last night
Cowering away from any sign of humanity
He creeps unseen against the crawling haze on the ground

The pale moon hiding behind the darkness
Leaves very little light to see
As the creatures linger amidst the night sky
The haze in the night drifts out of sight
