Anxiety paints my life

I felt pretty today,

Like the glimmering sun.

I felt happy today,

Like nothing else mattered.

I felt confident today,

Like the words of doubt were cut up small enough where I couldn’t read them.

I felt enough today,

Like I didn’t need to be somebody else.

So, I danced to my song.

Right there, in front of everyone.

No one else cared.


Except for you.


My self confidence,



And joy,

Were shattered.


All because you wanted a laugh.
