The darkness terrifies me,triggers my anxiety. The only light is here in my dining room. The birds are singing. I need daylight. I’m cold,mostly I am afraid. I don’t feel safe. I’d like to go back to bed & sleep,but not in all the darkness. I feel threatened & insecure. I look at the window…all I see is deep darkness. I want to cry. I am starting to tremble. There’s no sign of daylight. My thoughts are becoming weird & frightening me even deeper. I’m sleepy,so sleepy,but I need to stay here,where’s there’s light,but its not easing my fear. I’m afraid to move,even more afraid to look at the window. I listen to the birds singing & I wish I could be that happy & free. Anxiety controls me. I live in relentless fear & dread. Why is the daylight taking so very long to appear?
