Like a cat waiting to pounce
It's always there 
Lurking
Ready to strike

Like fire 
Burning within me
Eating away the wood 
Crackeling
It burns deep
Consuming me

A clock ticking 
Faster and faster 
My heart pounding to the rhythm 
My mind racing 
Fear taking over

A glass
Fine one second
You loose grip
Headed towards the floor 
Gaining momentum 
as falls to its impeding doom

It shatters
The clock stops
The fire rages
The cat pounces
Broken 
But you pick everything up 
And move on

My anxiety runs deep in my veins
