Anxiety

1:00 am
Sleep eludes me once again
Thoughts
Fears
Doubts
Coil around my chest
like a giant snake
constricting me
I am a rat
about to be swallowed
alive
by my worries
I need to change
be a better husband
father
son
brother
be a better me
I know what has to change
what has to happen
but
I can’t
do it
I am frozen
in fear
on a ledge
high above the earth
almost easier to just fall to my death
than to climb back in the window
and live
