Anxiously Yours, Patience

Anxiously Yours Patience
Anxiety (1894) by Edvard Munch

your anxiety surpasses mine
as my silence screams
and I lose you,
every passing day

to ideologues
to ideologies warring within

patience,
I tell myself
as bits of me crumble inside
no cupcakes or cookies can fill this void

time passes
and I count blessings
instead of seconds
trying to remember – what they told us is right

what should I do without you
the shadows knock at my door
and I stay still
just to breathe
