Our Minds

Are playing games again.

Why do we tell the people we want most to leave?

Why do we ignore those we need the most?

Those faces, smiles and laughter.

The ones that would lift our spirits the most 

Those are the ones we always push away first

Instead we are told to turn to a stranger 

To trust them with our deepest darkest secrets

And then everything will be okay.

When in reality it is basic human nature to fight or flight. 

And because we don’t want to fight our loved ones

We fly away.
