Anxiety's Metaphors

I’m estranged from my peace
..like a leaf to its shadow..
Meeting at last with my death

For my ghosts scream my faults
..like the Taunt of the Siren..
Beware the truth on their breath

And I’m veiled with a guilt
..like the cloak of the Reaper..
Standing here shrouded in blame

But I long revival
..like the rise of the Phoenix..
Flying from ashes and flame

I’m losing my passion
..like when Love meets Betrayal..
Rotting as on-beats my heart

And all thoughts are scattered
..like pieces of puzzles..
Neither quite whole nor apart

Emotions deceiving
..like the lies of the Devil..
Meanings to feelings are lost

My thinking is murky
..like the filth of the city..
Covered in smog and exhaust

And anguish is crashing
..like the waves of the ocean..
Teardrops outnumber the sand

I’ve learned trepidation
..like a child to his father..
Ever taught to flinch at his hand
