It's a bit like drowning

I suppose

but there's no way to swim

you're paralyzed


an old man on shore

tried to wave at me

I was too busy choking on saltwater

to notice it

The author's comments:

This is a short, two-stanza story about what it feels like having anxiety.  This doesn't necessarily apply to everyone with anxiety, as we all experience it differently.  I hope this sheds light on the stigma of mental health issues.  It does sound a bit cliche, but it's how I really feel.  This isn't made up from a figment of my imagination.
