Anxiety By John Cabbot

To you it’s a word.

To you it may be a feeling.

To me it’s a chapter.

It’s a chapter I wrote.

I wrote it October 4th, 2014.

It’s in my book Hearts and Diners.

I started writing it but,

Midway through I almost stopped.

I almost stopped everything.

I sat on the floor.

I thought of different ways.

Then I tried.

For hours.

I went back and forth on it.

It’s clear and a blur.

I don’t know what brought me back.

But I went back to the computer.

I finished the chapter.

I continued on.

But the title of the chapter:


Will forever live on in my head.

As that fateful day,

Where the story almost ended.
