Anxiety Poems – Poems of Anxiety

Anxiety is a normal response to a stressful situation or fear. It is a feeling of uneasiness and apprehension that makes the body quiver out of fear literally or metaphorically. Anxiety can be inevitable sometimes but it can be helped in some ways. It is important to understand what is causing you to be stressed and anxious. Identifying the cause of your anxiety can help alleviate the overwhelming feeling that you are experiencing. The next step is to just breathe and realize that there are things that are out of your hand so it is best to let it go rather than be anxious about everything.

Her Anxiety – Poem by William Butler Yeats

Earth in beauty dressed
Awaits returning spring.
All true love must die,
Alter at the best
Into some lesser thing.
Prove that I lie.
Such body lovers have,
Such exacting breath,
That they touch or sigh.
Every touch they give,
Love is nearer death.
Prove that I lie.

Anxiety – Poem by David Herbert Lawrence

The hoar-frost crumbles in the sun,
The crisping steam of a train
Melts in the air, while two black birds
Sweep past the window again.
Along the vacant road, a red
Bicycle approaches; I wait
In a thaw of anxiety, for the boy
To leap down at our gate.
He has passed us by; but is it
Relief that starts in my breast?
Or a deeper bruise of knowing that still
She has no rest.

Anxiety – Poem by Kaitlin Schmidt

Standing still, feet planted
Body frozen, mind racing
Fear takes over
Like another entity
That controls all
It pleasures in knowing
No advancement has taken place
Nothing has been overcome just stillness
It delights in knowing
How much power it has
Over that insecure body
Manipulation will be easy
Soon anxiety sets in
Causing the body to tremble
The more intense the trembling becomes
The more the certainty declines
As the body gets sucked down
The path of anxiety
Fear becomes overjoyed
Its job is done
That little seedling it planted
Developed and blossomed
And is taking over
The body
As the body realizes the fear
Needs to be expelled
The body doesn’t know how to
Get rid of it
So the insecure body
Succubus to the fear inside
Fear is overjoyed it did little
The body did the rest

Anxiety Of Young Love – Poem by David Beckham

With the birds chirping ever so softly in that afternoon sunshine
And the streets buzzing with cars going zoom zoom
The crescendo hit peak and went dead silent
When you suddenly appeared
I could hear the crackling of the spring leaves
As you marched forward from a distance
Your every step, I counted
13 in all
‘Hello’, you said
Then followed the gaze
You held it long enough to plant seeds of you in my heart
I was transfixed, speechless and filled with joy
Your lips went up and down
I heard nothing
Voice so sensual and soft like velvet the attraction was chilling
Presence, so magical, it kept my heart going like respirators
I wanted more of you
You pleasured my reason
And tickled my fancy with your dazzling swag
How could I resist
You had me
That night your thoughts blossomed in my heart like flowers do in the spring
Went to bed with just one thought
I want to see you again and again

My Anxiety – Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

I do not want to name it as lust
As she has shown enough of trust
Completely following on words
With so much of excitement I look forward
No doubt it is strong urge
From within and apparently seen on face
But it is shrewdly hidden behind wall
Even though she gives me sweet call
I have resisted temptation
But always strengthened bond and relation
Always concentrated on her sentiments
Even thought internally there was heavy movement
We sit under tree for many hours
Enjoy coolness and never feel sour
Whole of journey is open before us
We want it to be enjoyed with full trust
I speak no word and stare
She understands it all but does not dare
We are forbidden to trapped in excitement
I watch her keenly but make no comment
We often decide to break barrier
But go against and part as happier persons
Now we are not in hurry
We have lot more obligations to carry
She may acknowledge my anxiety
Press hand gently and smilingly convey
We are steps away from uniting
Accept my request and greetings

Social Anxiety – Poem by Jessica Stubbs

When I need words most
The seem to drift away
My brain as their host
Doesn’t know the right words to say
A panic sets in me
And everything becomes overwhelming
My self-esteem starts to drop
It feels as if my head might pop
It’s scary unexpected
It like I’m infected
I feel as if I’m always being tested
I feel like I’m always being rejected
Why can’t I talk
Why can’t I make that scared feeling stop
I barely ever leave home
I’m starting to wonder if I’ll spend all my life alone
When will this end
When will I start being okay again
