24/7

Yes, I’m afraid
afraid of nearly everything
my heart it screams
naturally it’s haunting me
it aches and moans
I feel fear in my soul
it’s so much more
than just a panic-this is
full blown
I’m awake
but dreaming is a nightmare
just like life
my eyelids shut
but I don’t feel right
it’s not a dream, no this
this is reality
and I am terrified
of sights, and sounds
and movements
a child laughs
and I am horrified
irrational as it must seem
my mind it works in constant agony
I’m afraid of everything
even when I know
there’s no reason to be.
