anxiety

a tiny grain
of worry
quite minor
no big deal
has been bouncing
around my head
for days
like a hailstone
in an updraft
growing bigger
adding layers
upon layers
of other small worries
until
it’s too heavy
to stay in the clouds
too big to ignore
so it has become
a huge worry
a vast worry
an out-of-proportionally large worry
rattling around my mind
weighing me down
exhausting me
with its non-specific
out of control
anxiousness
and I don’t even know
what I’m worried about
anymore
and all I want
is some peace
and some rest
from this fear

  1. You have described anxiety perfectly. It is amazing how a worry just festers and grows. It really does get to the point that what was the original thought truly is not clear anymore.
