He's always whispering to me in the back of my mind. He can make my palms sweat, my stomach flip, and my mind uneasy. He brings the tears to the rim of my eyes before I can even blind them away. He's the reason I have trouble talking to boys and making new friends. He's the reason I stay inside and hide away. He's this feeling in my brain. He is anxiety.

The author's comments:
I struggle with anxiety and my mom said I should write about it.

This was a good poem. I relate. I also have to deal with anxiety and it sucks.
