It was a struggle at first
But now my old friend visits
Again and again
Leaving me helpless in pain
Food becomes foe
And nights a sweaty drench
Laughter leaves the soul
Eyes are fogged and blank
I learn to laugh again
Like emerging from a black hole
Learning to see again
Stronger I am and more confident
It will come again I know
But it’ll never take me back
This is another awesome poem by MistryLand who hadn’t written for a while but I’m so glad she’s writing again! It’s so relatable and descriptive and really captures what having anxiety feels like.
