My name is Viveka Sah. I have suffered from anxiety in the past and a lot of my poems showcase those feelings of darkness, fear and the like, usually with hopeful undertones.

One of my poems:
You’re going to become everything you ever wanted to become.
You’re going to be able to do everything you ever wanted to.
Is that what you wanted to hear?
Is that what you’ve been telling yourself
All the while that you’ve been wreaking havoc?
That you’ll get what you want.
You want so much.
You want too much.
You’ve been at this for so long, how much more do you think you can take?
How much more are you going to ask of your body?
It isn’t a machine.
And you cannot ask it to be superhuman, because, child, it isn’t.
You’re a finite resource that can and will self-destruct if you need to.
You’re broken, yet you continue with the ceaseless barrage of demands?
Have you ever thought that you’re asking too much?
Rethink this whole mess.
Stay, struggle, watch everything burn if you have to.
But stop asking, stop demanding, stop insisting
Stop torturing the only thing you have.
Because, soon enough, you won’t have it anymore.
You won’t have anything but regret.
And you’ll lose yourself all over again.
