anxious
by J W

the tingling moves up my arm
my heart is thumping on my sternum
screaming to be let out
my stomach wails like a cat
every gurgle of my intestines
warning what’s to come
my brain knows the threat is real
sounds all the alarms shuts down what’s not
keeping me alive
to go about my day feels

Warrior
by Elizabeth DeLucey

Warrior
It was a warrior
The one meant for battle
But there was no war being fought
And what is a warrior without a war?
It didnt know the answer
All it knew was anger
All it knew was rage
The never ending pain that entered its soul
It needed the fight

Glass
by Cassidy Naekel

Like a bird trapped in a glass cage, you flutter around this town
Without purpose or direction,
diving head first into the edges,
spiraling down.
Landing in the barren fields of this place-
So many times that I have lost count.

You do not learn from your mistakes,
Instead you blame me
for not unlocking a door

Storm on me
by Priyanka Roy

Storm on me
Uproot me from my depression
Let every tear roll down my body
Rinsing, washing out memories
In blotches
White paper boats, vying
crashing against my chest
of dripping honey
a heavy sigh
of inhibitions, paranoia,

Fade away
by j d

Chiseled faces, to meet and greet
Jumping out, beneath my feet
Tortured souls, of pain, and anguish
Searching for something lost, and sacred

Pain all in my knees, and my mind is just as weak
Glad that I can see, but wishing I could speak
Alone in a crowd just staring at the clouds
Deathly afraid to speak my thoughts aloud

Metamorphosis, interrupted
by Anjali Pathiyath

I sometimes dream I am a caterpillar
who forgets to grow into a butterfly.
I burrow into leaves, breaking through their delicate venation.
I funnel my uncinate feet through curling petals,
I glide through the pungent weeds of uncertainty
and hang from gossamer threads of doubt.

I sometimes dream I am a caterpillar
blending into the mossy greens growing on decaying walls,
lost in the intricate forest and counting the unseen stars,

Panic in the Panic Room
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

At last I was a fruitful writer, and my new novel was selling well,
Like the stars of a moonlit evening, putting lovers under a spell.

I had ever loved self expression, the power and beauty of words,
Like the beauty of marshmallow clouds, migrating skies in herds.

It all began back in my childhood, when I never left books alone,
As the magic of loved fairytales, whisks children to another zone!

Now that I was making more money, recently I'd bought a home,

your mind speaking to you
by Khushi Malhotra

My head filled with so many thoughts
every single day,
My heart beat is racing
I’ve got too much to say.

So many feelings inside me
lonely ,hurt, angry
I used to love eating food,
Now I barely feel hungry.

The choker
by Sam Jet

Crawling around my neck
A braided choker with many threads
Threads of fears, worries and many dreads
Sometimes I reassure myself it's all in my head
But this makes it choke me harder instead
Makes me drown in tears trapped inside
Attacking me with a huge tide
No shore I can see as I am swept away
I lost me destination, I have gone astray
I am not in control anymore, I am just a witness
