Anxiety of a People-Pleaser

I initiate

I communicate

I follow

Wait

Waitwaitwaitwaitwaitwaitwait

Don’t……..don’t go

I promise you’ll like me

Let me just……

Text you, check in, email you……I care

I swear, I do.

Let me just…..wait

I’ll wait

(*panic rises in throat*)

(Anxiety – all-encompassing)

Am I chasing you

                For you?

Or for me?

………….could it be?………….

(*swoosh*) breath moves out

…………..I move in …………….

I don’t chase

                Or at least not forever

I deserve better

                Sometimes

Call me.
