Control Anxiety

Written for:  Go Dog Go Cafe - Tuesday Writing Prompt
(posted by Devereaux and Beth)

"Write a poem using the words 'control' and 'undermined'."

Upset by situations
over which I have 
no control.  My
anxiety level rises.
I feel a force 
is out there, 
determined to
undermine me.  Then,
I perceive paranoia
hovering, because 
I cannot see 
this strange force, 
and dare not
mention it to others.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
