Mentions of anxiety and depression.
You’ve always had a place in my head
Because everyday I see you, again and again
A reminder that you’re here to stay
And slowly but steadily you begin the descent to my heart
A rough climb is a even harder descend
But you don’t give up
Like waves on the beach you’re the unintentional metaphor for consistency
From my temples to my eyes to the tip of my nose to the tip of my tounge
All sights, smells & tastes change with every step you take
And just when you reach the corner of my jaw, there’s a dip you have to jump across
Its kind of steep but a really short leap to pass
So once you reached my collar bones you slide onto my ribs and grip me from within
Hello again the anxious rays of a bright monday morning
