Anxiety Trip

Loved & Lost
From Loved & Lost

Immersive interactions
Provoking palpitations
(Talons pierce ventricles
Heart’s chambers compromised)
Return reverberations
Escaping explanation
(Panic room centrepiece
Love’s longings televised)

You underestimate
The power in your grip
A simple touch for you
My anxiety trip
I overanalyse
No meaning in the breaks
Nor willing in the wake
Of epicentre quakes

Star-splendid sound splits the atmosphere
Jubilant and terrifying
Dazzling fragments
Dancing, frantic
Exuberant, electrifying

Deep breath fires the intellect
The fuel consumed too soon
And bitter, littered silence fills the vacuum to resume

That intimacy hangover
