Have you ever played a sad song over and over again so that you feel emotion?
There are those days when I feel the need to be pinched, to walk past a good smell, or experience a gust of cool wind and get goosebumps.
These are the battles that I face often, the battle to feel. To not fall prey to the cycle of motions we go through each day.
Then my less dramatic persona kicks in:
“Rocket, deeeeeeeuuuuuudddd, stop over thinking it all!”
(commences to stare at blinking line)
Then I start dancing. Or whistling at public places. Picking up litter that isn’t mine.
Making up oxymora to express my emotions.
(whistles; slowly exits into stage curtains)
Fade to black.
