That Feeling

Happy new year, dear reader! May your 2019 be filled with happiness and poetry! Lately, my mind has been delving into darker themes (again). No, my depression is not driving my words but rather I am writing with eyes wide open. Maybe dark is the wrong word...let's use 'different'. I am trying to explore different ways to express. The poem I wrote today is borne from nothing personal (this time). But rather it is the offspring of thoughts that just sort of came together in a short period of time. This is the start of my exploration into 'different'. Please enjoy.

Do you know the feeling of angst,
sitting in the pit
of your stomach?
Maybe angst is the wrong word…
call it whatever you want.
But it is a feeling.
Like something is eating you
from inside out.
Yeah, that sensation.
I have it every time
my thoughts stray.
