Fear of Safety
I tremble in fear as I walk in,
Yet this is the only place I feel safe.
I force myself to act normal,
Not afraid, not happy, not sad.
For me, normal is angry.
Only one person knows me.
She's one I would otherwise beat up.
I feel safe,
Yet I still want to burst into a run,
As I walk though the small room.
Two beasts hiss at me,
I hiss back and they run.
Just a little farther,
I pick up my pace and turn the knob,
