Her mind whirls around

Questioning every move like its life or death

Unable to stop the worrying

Nagging her tiring mind


Her insecurities at every corner

There is no where she feels safe

Every doubt that creeps in

Makes her lose another touch of reality


She has no need to worry

Anxiety overpowering her consciousness

Her happiness slowly slipping

With every what if scenario introduced


It is like a nightmare

A bad scene from a Hollywood movie

She can’t look away

She can’t turn off the screen


Trying to fight back the fear

Telling herself everything is irrational

She feels the straight jacket creep back on

Losing her fight once again


Thinking she was strong enough

To survive without constant reassurance

The memories of the past

Winning over her once again
