it's

 

                                                             more            than 

                                                                       worry

 

it's 

 

                                                                         fear

 

fear 

 

                                                               that i said the wrong
                                                                      
                                                               thing in passing

 

                                                                                                           "does that person hate me now"

fear that the i didn't lock the stupid car door

lying in bed 
swimming in my own worry, 
is not the way
I thought I
would spend my twenties.

 

and 

 

it's apart of me,
as much as the hair on my head
and the name on the paper

 

and

 

i have no idea how to get rid of it
