Anxiety 

I feel the vice grip on my heart

moving up my chest 

into my throat
Anxiety is a real bitch. 
I don’t even know 

what my body 

is reacting this way towards
be careful

or it’ll get you too

and as far as I know

there’s no cure
I take a deep breath

and momentarily 

clear the pain

but wait! 
here comes that breathless sensation 

rushing through my chest again
