Approachable Anxiety

Approachable but unapproaching, wanting to flee
So badly to run, free myself from the burdening of anxiety

Shaking, heart racing, pounding through the trees amongst the forestry created by man itself

Self inflicted, not sure how to speak up when my voice is being drowned out with the weight of their tenacity
And I need to scream, but my lungs are choking me back

Tightened palms and loud songs, following my every pattern and they’re still reading me, recording movements I’m not even visibly making

And so finally with one last gesture, air slowly fading, i get up and walk
