Shared Anxiety

Breathe. Breathe.

I feel the rush of fear course through my body. Anxiety flowing fast- its speed moving like black stallions on the wings of my mind.

Breathe. Breathe.

The dam breaks and a flood of emotions crash against the walls of reality. Love and loss drip heavy in the darkness. I recall portraits of joy and tombs of helpless abandon.

Breathe. Breathe.

I am surrounded by hope and fear. Two contrasts- a phoenix of burning, glorious dawn abreast to a muscled dragon, draped in the ashes of utter night.

Breathe. Breathe.

I live in a world where such moments entrance my being. Their sudden appearances haunt my thoughts like a ghost among the promises of all potentials.


I am the silent witness. I am the victim and villain. When you see me- when you see my silent stance- will you understand? Will you see the tides of an ocean that weigh in the balance between storm and sun?


When I see you, when you stand on the brink of high and low, a place between earth and sky- know that I see you. Know that I understand and know dear friend that you are not alone.

And together, let’s breathe.
