Closet of My Mind

By felicity0444

I feel myself falling
 Withdrawing into myself
Hiding in the closet of my mind
Where everything is known and safe
Where no one is trying to hurt me
 
Finally I see a glimmer of hope
A ray of light
A reason for opening up
And so I breathe again
Peace and serenity flow over me
And for the first time in a long time
I smile a true smile that begins inside
 
I glide down the hall shining from within
Suddenly the hall extends
Darkens
The paint on the walls appears to crack and droop
Like bags under an aged eye
And as I walk through the threshold
My closet awaits me
Triumphant once again
Basking in its devious glory  
The grin of darkness envelops me once again
 
I settle in and curl up
Knowing this was never my place
People created this hell for me
I just live in it.

    I can relate to this.. Withdrawing into yourself and dreams .. Sensitivity, anxieties, introversion and so on.. In my case I created my own 'hell' and it took a lot of growing up I guess to Overcome it...and I still have ups and downs. You seem to have a lot of inner strength and beauty so I hope those true smiles you speak of become a permanent fixture.. Oh and I also really like the wall metaphor Like bags under an aged eye.

    I loved the emotions that spurred from this, in a bitter sweet sort of way. The imagery breathed for me and the steps I walked along the spine of this write were familiar. Thank you for sharing it
