Favorite Quote:
"My greatest trouble is getting the curtain up and down." - T.S. Eliot


Noises
I cover my ears
shadows
I close my eyes
in my other world, I am safe
deaf and blind, if only for a time

if I can't see you, you can't see
me
if I don't hear you, you don't hear me
I won't fear you, and you won't fear me

it's childhood logic, it's more than make believe
but no less than the magic of a few falling leaves


The author's comments:
I think that, at times, we all want to shut out our surroundings, whether from fear, anger, embarrassment, or anything else that life throws at us.
