Anxiety

Tue, 11/12/2019 - 03:20 -- Roba

I'm a prisoner in my own body 

sweating every time you remind me 

 

Anxiety 

 

It held me hostage at my own party 

took my hand just to throw it back at me 

 

Anxiety 

 

It sealed my lips so I can't tell you my story

Tried to run or stay hidden but the silence reached into me

 

Anxiety 

 

Feeling lonely when there are so many people god I'm sorry 

believe me when I say I can't spit it out it's ascending me 

 

Anxiety 

stop reminding me 

I'm spinning on thin ice 

wake me up it's anxiety 

 

Warning me 

I can't die it told me 

I have to live and pretend I'm happy

 

But no, I won't let it reach me 

it's a murderer that wants to defeat me 

it's the fire that wants to burn me 

it's the person that enjoys my death secretly 

 

Anxiety 

Anxiety 

Anxiety 

 

I'm desperate I want it out of me 

get out of me 

Anxiety 

Stalking me

chasing me 

craving me 

 

Anxiety 

 

Crying out loud so why can't you hear me 

run faster it's so close to me 

 

Anxiety 

screaming 

Anxiety 

tearing 

Anxiety 

stealing 

 

Anxiety 

can you hear it?
