It’s a distraction.
Distraction from the sadness
Distraction from the anger
Distraction from the exhaustion
Distraction from the fear.
The mind can mutate a fright
Into a terror.
If we let it stand in the path of an emotion.
The mind will feed that poison orphan emotions
Which would otherwise wander and quickly die in a distant memory.
And I don’t want to be in that symbiotic relationship.
I would rather witness a short living terror,
Than live in constant anxiety.
