Wearing and Tearing


Emotions
on overload
sending a distorted sheen
into the air
a nimbus
trailing behind.

Wearing on the mind
tearing under the skin 
leaving behind scars
and the detritus of living.

Rein them in
dim the glimmer
filter out the strongest
bring the aura into balance
or suffer the consequence.

But think,
what if the consequence
is the purpose?
