Shutting The World Out

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “to your left.” When you sit down to write your post, look to your left. What is the thing closest to you? Write about the memories that thing induces. Enjoy!


Shut out the world
Runaway from the noise
The chaos and misery
Shouted from the rooftops
Turn the music louder
And keep those headphones on
Trying to keep out
The distractions and negativity
Sometimes rock and drums
Other harmonious meditations
Beats and flutes to transport
Sanity when it seems unavailable
My second ears to hear myself
My second ears to fade into
My second ears to keep you out
Salvation when the world is too much
When people are too much
When living feels like too much
