Heightened

Heightened.

Everything is heightened.

Sadness becomes misery,

Envy becomes resentment,

Nostalgia becomes yearning,

Anger becomes fury,

Anxiety becomes panic,

Fear becomes dread,

Emotion becomes heightened.

It climbs and climbs and climbs, until one day the emotion is gone.

The emptiness arrives.

A hole is created.

The emptiness stays.

It stays until the light is turned on.

It stays until the emotions are calmer.

It stays until the emotions return.

It stays until the hole is full again.

The circuit stays running.

Running for as long as it can.

Until it breaks.
