How To Conquer When Anxiety Infects A Place

Have you had your anxiety attach itself to a place so much so that you couldn't bring yourself to even go anymore?

Old Lovers

Here’s another poem from my personal site.

For love oft’ hides with gray-haired wise.

A youthful joy for years of loss,

Refreshing light from a world unknown,

And a fruitful harvest from seeds well sown.
