I retire from the crowd, feeling kinda strange.
This anxiety is drowning me, somethings gotta change.
I gotta get in my mind's soul and start to rearrange––
your confidence for my sadness, care for an exchange?
This loneliness has company,
Gaining on me subtly,
I'm handing out custody,
I'm left with nil––utterly.
I think about tomorrow; wasting my today.
Already feel broke, before I even gotta pay.
I hear what I wanna hear, not what you have to say.
Losing bits of self; as I try and make my way.
This stressing is messing––
maybe it's a blessing;
dressing up depressing.
Trying to fool me, as it's assessing––
keeping me on my toes daily; guessing.
I need a change, now
I want to be the cause of "wow"
Just give me a go; allow,
I'll be the answer to your "how".

i like this flow of everything : ) and we should make a rap together
Yes, definitely would make a good rap and having had experienced extreme anxiety (only just conquered this) I can say this captures it.
>< really? i'm glad it resonates, sorry you've felt this way though. Thank you for reading me xx
Wow that's great. Its really unique, and like many great poems it has the feeling of a song, in my opinion
oh thanks yeah a lot my rhyming poems with internal line rhyme feel a bit like a song or rap thanks for reading, glad u like it xx
ah, yes... anxiety is a... really annoying thing~ xD
wish there was an on/off switch for that~! - w -'
>< indeed, an on/off switch for any emotion or thought would be stellar thanks for reading x
I can so relate with the feelings here. Well said. ^_^
I read this and I just wanna lend you my strength, beautifully written and beautifully told
This piece is very original and flows very nicely! There isn't anything that I would change about it.
haha nice, I haven't actually heard of them.. but yeah sometimes I just do internal line rhyming if it suits what I'm trying to portray, for this poem it was meant to accentuate the stress or anxiety, I wrote this as a rap/spoken word poem.
Thanks for reading me x
Nice work. I love the idea and the overall flow. Well written.
Very well written. Thank you
