My bedroom is my fortress
Comforting, protecting, immaculately clean
My desk is my study
Pencil marks and paint stains tell tales long forgotten
My nightstand is my dining room
Empty glasses left from my midnight wanderings
My bookshelf is my library
Hundreds of pages in hundreds of books, waiting to be read
My window is my telescope
Showing me up close the nature in my backyard
My bedroom is my fortress
Comforting, protecting, immaculately clean
