Closing another door

To remain safe from myself

Remaining still

From the voices and footsteps

Beyond the door

Beyond myself

Into reality

That this hand could never hold on to

Into love

That this heart could never handle

Locking the door

To my thoughts

Hiding the memories

Hiding myself

The key given to reality

Fortified to keep me away

Away from that

The outside

The danger

The peace

The World.
