“Anxiety is love's greatest killer. It makes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds on to you. You want to save him, but you know he will strangle you with his panic.” ~Anais Nin
Anxiety Dream - A Senryu
at the last minute
chosen to play the lead role
the script disappeared
This is based on a nightmare I had last night. In the dream, a woman called to ask me to play the lead role in a play she was directing. The original actress had called to say she couldn't come in that day. I accepted the role. She told me where to pick up the script so I could get my lines. I only had a few hours to remember them. When I went to get the script in a cubicle in an office building, I couldn't find them. I looked everywhere but they weren't there. I felt a lot of anxiety while dreaming.
