Ever tried to explain your social phobia to someone else, but couldn’t find the right words? Ever been on the other end, desperately trying to understand how this person you’re trying to connect with actually feels? It is a double-edgede sword: one can feel lonely, but at the same time, too trapped to go out and be with others. Halloween is a time that many think of fun and excitement. But for those with social anxiety, that is hardly the sentiment. If you’re struggling to feel yourself today, reflect on these social phobia poems below to know you’re not alone:
Paranoia, Frighten, Crowds, Petrified
I Can’t Deal, I Cannot Cope, Frozen In Place
Moving Through, Crowds Of Many, No Method
No Order, Push, Shove, Bump Me, Help
Someone Help Me, This Crowd, Suffocate Sweaty Palms, Drip Drip, Where Am I
Why Am I Here, Why Leave the House
What Am I Doing, No Safety, Where’s Home
Someone Save Me, I Need To Escape
Breathe Breath, Remember To Breathe
I Need A Way Out, Anxiety Attack
Bad Choices, Don’t Move, No Hope
I Can Not Do This, I Must Leave
I Need Out, Looks Of Judgement
Musn’t Do This Again, HELP HELP!
Petrified, Crowds, Frighten, Paranoia
I am going out to a party, but I don’t want to go.
