being in a snit

emotionally hijacked!

emotions can hijack,
particularly fear,
particularly anger,
and rationality goes out the window,
our troubled self huddles, 
as if cold,
next to the flame
of our pain,
of our hurt,
of our indignation,

it perversely feels good to sulk,
to be in a snit,
to feel aggrieved,

not just airplane cockpits
need protection from hijacking.
