Sometimes I wander so deep into my mind,
To reality, I go blind.
When I am jolted out of my precious reverie,
The real world is foreign to me.
Colors, so bright.
Sounds, bring fright.
Sights, too vivid.
Words, are rigid.
My soul is so sensitive, it stings.
My eyes are hurt by the tangible things.
My heart breaks, bit by bit.
I feel the darkness settle more by the minute.
So again, I return to the inner workings of my mind.
I shield myself, inside my head I am free & unconfined.
