Four walls surround, flesh and bone
in this room, in this dilapidated home.
Oh! Hurry, scurry, reach for the door;
numbness in the arms, endless worry lingers.
all too human, and worry will certainly box you in and send you careening like a handball around the walls it creates…
Indeed, Brian, it’s a killer and depression bringer.
Oh, worry will eat at you, if you let it…got to get out & find peace…good work, Brad!

Thank you, Louise, darling. I’ve been searching for peace for (it seems like too long), but will it eventually come? I’m still holding on.
I love the brevity of this piece–for me, it serves to heighten the anxiety—the sense of closeness creeping in–
Thank you, Audrey! I’m waiting for these walls to crumble, darling; I won’t allow them crush me.
Worry keeps the mind scurrying in circles and creativtiy boxed in. I should stick this on a card above my desk so I won’t keep forgetting that.
I agree, Nara, and sticking this on a card would be lovely, because worry will fade – I just might do it too!
You’ve given me an entire horror novel with one wickedly weaved stanza that has my imagination running away. I see skeleton fingers making fodder of my brain as demon worry takes residence. Fantastic!
Write away, Natasha! Thank you so much!
Worrying can be paralysing sometimes. Great write.
Indeed it can, Aaron – thank you!
It does indeed ~ I can relate ~
We’ll break these four walls, soon.
Worry is the enemy…Good write…I have been there many times….
Worry must die, so I must annihilate it. We’d make a great team. Thank you, Ayala! ♥
Yes, such a bane is worry, that we would do anything to banish it. Hope your worry disappears and you can dwell in new spheres..of joy. Nice poem.
Indeed! Joy will come for me one day, until then I’m trapped in dismay. Thank you, Majjellica.
Worry can indeed box us in. I could relate to this one, almost everyone can. Nice, tight write.
Worry is programmed in most members of my family, and almost all of us have the worry gene – I worry about everything. But I guess worry is very common among some intelligent primates. Thank you, Alex.
Yeah, I feel my bones and flesh with too much worry..and the world is a small room then. A little gem here, Brad…Hope you see joy soon!
I have joyous days, and days that are not so joyous. But I’m hoping to have more joyous days! Thank you, Jackie! ♥
This makes anxiety palpable! Well done!
Thank you, Mama Zen!
Well-captured moment in time. It’s a little scary how tightly certain emotions can grip us.
Thank you, Lori. Indeed it is, but I’m still working on preparing my life and escaping these four walls. Thanks for stopping by!
