Safe Room

I stay in my room where I’m safe

I’m safe

I’m safe.

I stay there to have space and time for myself

Myself

Time for myself.

I used to breathe around the house

Stretch

Relax

And just be still in the silence and rudimentary life.

Now I stay in my room trying to keep the noise out

Drown it all down.

So I stay in my room

The only place I feel safe.

The Darkened Room

Peering through the darkness

The vast emptiness

Out into the unknown

The light is devoured by the blankness

Hidden from sight and silently

Takes a soul apart

Alone in the darkened room

With nothing but tears for friends

The fear is evident as the black void

Grows ever slowly and surely
