her real life wasn't enough.
or it was too much.
either way,
she needed to evade.
even for only a handful of moments.
so she did.
she disappeared.
not literally, not entirely.
she watched from above.
disconnected.
her body flowing through the familiar motions.
her emotions sitting still with their aerial view.
not judging.
not really feeling.
she just watched, observed.
gathered.
she went elsewhere in her mind.
she needed out.
for a little while.
she would be back.
almost like she never left.
almost.
but for now, she needed to
go.

  2. It is just way to easy to let the world make you hard. Disappearing, if even for a short while, is sometimes a necessity.

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
