Anxiety- sonnet

Pz-avatarby Nitsan Shtivi15 Mar 2020

I have known her since forever
she is my "best friend"
I have no doubt she'll be here till the end.
She always says you can't, she always says never
playing with my mind, she can do whatever.
She breaks my heart and makes it hard to mend.
My brain like a prisoner waits for her command
she makes my thoughts drift, she takes them wherever.

This "friend" of mine comes without a warning
She wants to stay so she brings pain and sadness
she is there from the minute I open my eyes in the morning.
If that wasn't enough, she brought the gift of madness.
She is selfish she never really cares
because she is the essence of my nightmares.
