Worry a'creapin Confusion sets Nerves are startled Fear Upsets
Minds a racin' Thoughts implode Face is flushed Fear Explodes
Hearts a'flutter Chest tightens up Voices stutter Fear Erupts
Hearts a'poundin Sweat then rolls Panic resounding Fear unfolds
Deaths a'loomin Dreads attack All consuming Fear is back
Peace a'buildin Calm ensues If Gods willing Fear defused
I learned a 2 beat structure similar to this from a friend on Facebook. I took what I learned and put my own twist on it by bouncing back and forth between 2 and 3. Even kind of a 3-4. I think it sounds better with that beat rather than a constant 2. As if I did anything to explain what I mean by a beat-structure lol. Its just my personal language that I use. I used that structure while thinking about anxiety and this is the result.
My mind is a trick-seed sprouting in me Runners wide run in rich but shallow soil Each birthing things that were not meant to be Deserted, parched they die as I recoil A false womb am I and guilty tears shed Over false dreams buried in open graves Who will come to avenge the wanton dead The miscarriages flow in scarlet waves ‘Had you but fed us,’ each cries out, ‘you could Now reap.’ As weeds they rise from their dark holes And invading, choking out new crops would Paralyze this befuddled, barren soul Who can supplant the worming roots, their cry And fate other than death my dreams supply?
