Post-Life



People laugh at me, my
terror and
social anxiety.
Death did scare me,
but not forever.

People stare at me,
terror and,
social anxiety still,
destroys my feelings and,
everything around.

People point at me, again,
terror and,
social anxiety.
Demons of imagination,
circle and torment me.

People talk about me,
terror and,
social anxiety.
Death doesn't scare me,
I joined thee.
