Drowning in Darkness

by No1ButMe   Sep 4, 2017

Shrouded by darkness
I want to grab her hand
How did my life turn into this
I need to understand
The two of us
Stand in the drop of light
But I cannot leave the bubble
For I don't have the might
I am scared of the darkness
Oh, but she is not
She has the scars to prove
She's won, every battle she's fought
She tries to reassure me
That eventually it'll be okay
I tell her I can't do it
I need her to stay
She slightly smiles and
Says she'll always be here
I try to look confident
But I'm drowning in fear
I hear a blood curling scream
Reverberating through my head
As I turn towards the noise
I miss everything she said
My eyes dart across the darkness
But nothing comes into sight
I start to crouch into a ball
Not ready for this fight
Terror stricken, I turn back
Realizing I'm all alone
Wanting to run after her
But to afraid of the unknown...

- I wrote this based on how I felt during my first anxiety attack like the old me that was strong became so lost to me. If you have ever felt this, I know it sucks but it does get better. Just keep moving forward.-

    Panic attacks are awful. You really put a face on how you were feeling. Well done-

    Wow...I absolutely love the vivid images I saw before my eyes! Just the right amount of darkness... I cannot elaborate further but just know I absolutely love this. Added to my faves and nominated.

    One small thing, I think it is 'too afraid'.
