I see them, full of grace,
They glide with ease,
No fear in their face.

I watch them from outside,
Still and alone,
I want to go hide.

Occasionally one comes near,
Terror seeps in.
I cower in fear

Internally, I scream and shout,
joke, laugh and quip,
Can’t force it out

They scoff, get up and leave,
Slip away
I silently grieve

In the confines of my head,
things unsaid are said.

Tell myself the usual lie,
“Next time’ll be different,
Just give it a try”

I hate my stupid anxiety
Who’d ever bother with me?
