Writing Prompt Wednesday – “Coping”


against the majority by paulchen11

Crippled by an invisible weight, intangible, frightening

Praying for enough of a calming breath to steady themselves

Imagine this anxiety-ridden feeling returning–not again

Nearly every day spent in anticipation, dread

Gradually finding a way to cope with wave after wave
