Accumulation of Distractions

I am an ever-growing accumulation of distractions,

averting my attention,

avoiding the truths weighing within,

hoping they subside over time

knowing well

they eventually need to be addressed,

not acknowledged,

but head on confronted,

however,

until that time comes

I welcome hellos from strangers,

the physical comfort of acquaintances

kept at arms length,

and intimate moments

which do not last

longer than the burning of a match

-POE(MS)
