The buzzing voices around me
Drown out the anxiety within
There is a constant change of emotions
Ranging from happy to exhaustion
For a moment, I enjoy the conversation
Not drained by our pretension
For this exchange of dialogue
Roots from mutual respect and admiration.

We part with fulfilling laughter
The smile lingering thereafter
Then I notice that the clock is ticking
There’s something that I am forgetting.

Then I see you emerging, ignorantly smirking
Here comes anxiety, creeping and crawling.

I blink, too late, you are too close
You put a hand on me
I have the urge to cut it off
All I can do is endure
Hoping you will leave soon
If you don’t, my horror will explode.
