A subtle panic like a slow death creeps, the anxiety within me, for here's where it sleeps. Quietly loud enough to cover the sound, of the glassware you've thrown, now strewn all around. Rocking all positive lullaby's to sleep, ensuring all menacing thoughts I'm to keep. It's adept like the teen who's stayed out beyond curfew, sneaks in armed with oceans with which it will drown you. All because of the lies that were said, went in through your ears and lived in your head. The life you once had held aloft like a prize, you breathe your last breath and then close your eyes.
