My New Necklace

Anxiety around my neck
Like a rope chain made of gold
Hiding what I feel inside
No one can ever know
Depression’s haze like a fog
Rolling in so randomly
Weighing on my shoulders & chest
I can barely breathe
I used to be so happy
I used to be carefree
I used to enjoy life
Now what’s happened to me?
How did I get here?
How did it all come to this?
Where did it all go wrong?
How long have I been this way?
How long will this go on?
This Anxiety around my neck
Holding my head down
Trying to stay afloat
Trying not to drown
Wish someone would throw a lifeline
And pull me out of this despair
Before this anxiety around my neck
Becomes too much to bear
