Shut In

Over the hills
And far away
You sit at my door
You yell, “Let’s go play”
Save your breath and go away.

I don’t want to go and play
I just want to shut out this day
Cage my emotions and
Shove you away
Anti-social networking, that’s my way

An empty room is company
No one’s telling me to talk
No ripping out hair
From stress of pretending I care
This is why silence is most fair

Out casting myself
Kindness locked up
Boxed on the shelf
Still keep to myself
“Leave me alone I don’t need help”

I like being alone
When my imagination soars
My stories meet the world,
But until then
I’ll live my life shut in.
