17. Anxiety Attack

Voices fill the broken silence,
A life of fear, hatred and violence,

Lingering hopes shatter at once,
These lurking demons are ready to pounce,

Red ink doodles on our skin,
Even at birth we lived in sin,

Some thoughts just never leave,
They claw at your mind until you can barely breathe,

Walls closing in to trap us here,
Captured in a frightening fear,

No air left for anyone to gasp,
No escape from this icy grasp,

Curled up, hoping to escape,
There is no way to leave for it is too late.
