Safe house

Brunei-based writer May Cho of The Mayden writes about the fragility of life
Life's been a bit too good and I am afraid.

This state of normalcy I find myself within, absent of peril, of turbulent storms, troubles me. I do not feel right feeling this sane. There looms no danger in the air, no great, devastating stench harbinger of internal disaster. It is odd, almost disturbing. It feels like a taunt, like I am in a safe house that caters to my every need, my every desire. It keeps me safe and sane, dispelling my mind into all of its warmth and fullness and sending my body into a light, glowy buzz. All this while the outside world breaks beneath chaos.

And then, I think: I belong in the chaos.
