People deal with pain in different ways
Distractions are good for a while
and I suppose they can become reality
but I wonder what happens to the person
inside the person
who was left behind
and replaced with a pretty picture
do they turn to ash,
a pillar of salt
are they flattened into a new foundation
for a life to come
or do they just leave a sore spot
that never heals
sort of get cryogenically frozen
somewhere deep in the soul
and thaw out from time to time
when you cry in your pillow
That's the person I like talking to
But how do you get there
how do you give that person a hug?
