Anxiety

I want you to hold me
Tighter
Closer
Anything to slow my heart inside my chest
Tighter
Closer
Anything to stop the earth from spinning
Tighter
Closer
Anything to relieve the tingling in my fingers
Tighter
Closer
Anything to keep away the terror at the periphery
Tighter
Closer
Anything to make this stop
Tighter
Closer
Anything to bring me back
Tighter
Closer
Back to consciousness
Tighter
Closer
Back to reality
Closer
Back to life
Closer
Back to living
Close
Back to calm
Close
Back to me
