Poem: Worst Enemy

Worst Enemy

Raced ahead of me I did
Anxiety’s mind a maze of misdirection
Crashing into walls disguised as paths

Synapse shooting with no purpose
Splashed against the calm
The intruder unraveling me
Leaving remnants strewn about
In chaotic mess

Logic is ignored
Gone in a flash
A whirlwind of me
Won’t rest
Won’t sleep
Won’t be
Until destruction’s complete

“Jumping to the worst conclusion in a single bound”
A Superman of super-over-thinking
Watch me soar …
And crash
My own worst enemy
