words I want to scream
never reach my tongue
the fear is in my bloodstream
I've had it since I was young

"moderate to severe social anxiety"
the grey-haired doctor said.
afraid to take up space in society
until I daydream of being dead

my dry lips are robbed of a word
I'm saved by the scatch of graphite
on paper, my voice is heard
that's why I write
