AN UNDESIRABLE ATTRACTION by Haley Winkle My anxiety is a love song, the music composed by the rattles of my restless bones that tap their sweet melody against the inner edge of my skin, ricocheting through each layer and smoothly coursing through my blood. My anxiety is a love song about the attraction between my rows of teeth as they hold each other close and never let go despite the rapid beats of the pulse around them that tries so hard to tear them apart. My anxiety is a love song sung from my breath to my hands in short breaths even though it tries so desperately to reach them while they shake. My anxiety is a love song and I am the radio, it plays on AM frequency to reach every receiver and like a nostalgic classic, it’s played between the newer songs that aim to be just as famous only to remind the ears that it still exists.
