    I felt it. The tearing.

    I think I actually heard it. My heart was beating so fast. There was nothing I could do but let my body hit the ground, it seemed only logical in that moment, maybe the only logical thing about that moment. I'm not sure how long I had been screaming before I realized the sound...

    Distraction is an art I have come to know much

    about. My demons are spoiled and demanding and ruthless. Distraction is the only thing that keeps them quiet for a time. My mind and my body sometimes seem to act independently and of their own free will. So much emotion not just my own but others too, seething inside me...

    Communication
