Seeking Balance

Could not walk

Toe to heel

Balance lost

Not found

Lost her footing

And a little of her


Read the messages

In the blood



Breath down

Her neck

Not able to

Keep the beat


  1. Before I saw the tag ‘Anxiety’ I was thinking, whoa, this is exactly what anxiety feels like, physically, mentally, but especially emotionally. With your quick lines and abrupt changes you really illustrate precisely how one tries to maintain that, yes, elusive equilibrium, almost paralyzed with fear of straying too far and disrupting the whole thing. Good job.
