there is blackness
a world of peace
where no one can touch me
my worries can cease.

I am my own being
I can feel and I can see
I can think my own thoughts
I can think about me.

I come here often
they don't care
I'm out of their way
out of their hair.

Behind the clothes
and past the shoes
I've made a place
where I can't lose.

I need be
only me.
In my closet.
