OWIA

Goosebumps keep coming
and acid tickles the back of my throat. 
I decided not to eat
so my stomach wouldn't upset itself. 
I am so
worried
worried
worried. 
I am glad not always. 
Because I would surely have an ulcer by now, 
if that was the case. 
Like, just a small one. 
In the wall of my stomach
from all the 
worry
worry
worry
so intense. 
I want to be settled instead.
