butterflies blossoming in my gut my eyes wild and wide to let it all in a storm-tossed ocean pounds in my chest flooding my ears pouring out my wide wild eyes as breath like a fox darts through my lungs and I feel a sharp prick as my teeth sink into my lip Anxiety meets Anticipation takes her out for a drink ends in a brawl in the dark alley of my mind and I end up the victim here but courage lives inside me still, slow golden honey oozing and I begin to thaw, drip drip dripping sluggish yet steadfast go I #napowrimo2019 #the100dayproject #poetry
