Cope

A gasp in her breath
Chill in her spine

That anxious feeling
Is over a nine

Her eyes are darting
Body starts to jolt

Those mental rituals
It's hard to cope

The involuntary urges
She has to give in

Her mind control
Always wins

Will people notice
Stop and stare

Or carry on as normal
Hopefully not care

Jean, Anyone who does not understand the meaning of your poem, really has no understanding of the suffering some people have to cope with on a day to day basis. I think it will stop some parents feeling very isolated and lonely. Keep writing
