Anxiety and Depression


Maryann Crawford

My heart pounding
With Anxiety
My blood pumping
With Depression
My frown stretched further
As I fell in a plummeting hole
Twisting, turning
Screaming with no one
Plummeting deep into the seas
Of anxiety and depression
The waves pulling me under
My screams quieter
Fish pass without blinking and eye
Sharks bypass no attempt to attack
My heart shrinking
My breath struggling
Red seas float around me
My eyes drifting close
Salt stinging my wounds
My heart losing to the battle
Against anxiety and depression
A tiny bubble escapes my lips
Like the faith I used to have
