Distraction as medication

Because life can get too much.

We seek out distraction

To mute the sickening sense of dread

Of feeling our hopes and dreams

Slip between our fingers

Vanish before our very eyes

And threaten to descend with us

Into a pit of quiet desperation.

So we hide behind screens,

Alcohol and half hearted relationships,

Looking for something-


To stop us from dwelling

On our lot in this life for too long

Because life can get too much.

Lucky for us there’s always a distraction close by

To take away the sting.
