BATTLING THE ENEMY

9FC

BATTLING THE ENEMY, 4/29/14

Yolanda Isabel Regueira Marin

A heavy heart,
So full of woe,
Emotions brimming,
An overflow.
Black cloud envelops,
Desolate and blue,
Breathing is labored,
Heart pounds on cue.
Head full of thoughts,
Fighting for space,
Jumbled emotions,
Mind can't erase.
Lie in the dark,
Everything bleak,
Don't want to see,
Failure to speak.
Sleep is elusive,
Pacing all night,
Try to make sense,
Nothing seems right.
Feeling of panic,
Hold back a tear,
Try to stay calm,
Nothing to fear.
Anxiety takes over,
There is no control,
An enemy to battle,
For life to be whole.
