i can feel your eyes
that look you have
swings an axe
i am defenseless
in your gaze
i am trained
to fall pale
as a tidal wave
of anxiety rushes over me
any confidence i have
melts off of me
my self-esteem
falls to the ground
cold sweat breaks
and i've never felt so sick
all that is hopeful
dangles in front of me
things i am capable of
become taunting reminders
of all i haven't done
you strip me bare
and freeze my bones
while torching my skin
have i spent everything?
is there anything left?
your tragic eyes
take it all away
