Anxiety steals away the night-
becoming a wrestler of
covers, which thrash to and fro.
Guessing games and outcomes
heighten—a continuous climb
into a purposeless destination;
juxtaposing reality and desire–
knowing that control
lingers in the hands of another.
Momentarily frozen in power;
numbness succumbs to the
Perhaps there is a way out-
questioning options; possibilities;
resurrection of the true self,
stagnation no more!
Trust yourself and be
unrelenting–with a powerful
yielding to confidence
