A Series : Emotions Are Visitors

Emotions are visitors

They come

We treat them graciously

And they leave

There is reprieve

In time

If you can stay in the moment

I am a reactive person

I have to pause

And process

Before seeking a solution

There must be a fusion

Of emotions and logic

I have found it catastrophic

To plow ahead

Instead of

using my skills

And soothing myself

My thoughts get tangled

I get hooked on the wrong angle

Unhelpful perspectives

Leading me to dead ends

but paths can be traced & re travelled

Knots can be unravelled

DBT is the key in the lock

But it has to practiced

To the point that it becomes second nature

So when the skies darken

& storms arise

I can reach naturally and find

My wise mind.
