Anxiety

Hydra-headed cartoon monster
with more tentacles than an octopus
Kraken-spawn
dwarfing Leviathan
whisper thin and sharp
passing through walls and windows
heart, mind and soul
on tendrils of smoke.


Grasping, seizing, choking, strangling
with manacles of iron
resisting resistance
overwhelming courage and determination
overshadowing and overpowering.


Beaten down but not back. 
Beaten back but not down.
Ever present.
Omnipresent?


Dissipating waves of peace and light.
Dissipated by waves of peace and light?
Not today.


Where are my guardian angels
advocates and surrogates?
Who does battle for me?
