In Control

If I keep writing
It keeps my mind from wondering
It helps me stay in control
I can lead my thoughts
I can put them on paper
But once I stop
The odds are not longer in my favor
The words may not make sense
It may be a jumbled mess
But at least for now
I can keep my thoughts
My fears
All the hurt in check
I’m in total control of how I feel
And what thoughts run through my head
For a moment
My eyes are dry
And my hearts not beating from my within my chest
For these few moments
I am in control
I can keep my mind in check
And prevent the pain
The past
Prevent it all from creeping in
A moment of quiet
A moment of peace
A much needed moment of total control amidst the emotional mess
