    I really liked this poem, it has a powerful message. Even people who don’t have anxiety can read this poem and understand a little what anxiety is like. You do a good job giving detail and maxing anxiety come alive as a person.

    as someone who struggles with anxiety, I find this poem powerful and relatable. the brevity and abruptness of the poem is very impactful, you did a very good job.

    I really enjoyed reading this. You did a very good job of showing what anxiety is and what it is like. It is very powerful like Abbi said. Awesome job.

    This was such a powerful piece. I really like the abrupt ending, I think that it really works well with the subject matter and the style of the rest of the piece. In the first line, I think you’re missing the word “me”. Other than that, excellent work.
