Closing Off

As life threatens to crush 

I take a good long look

Taking it all in

Savoring the smells

Admiring the beauty

Enjoying the touch.


The demons chasing me

The unfortunate tripping me

The pain slowing me 


I know my way of escape,

Not through an extreme,

Though that weight is there,

A way I've escaped before.

I begin to build 

Brick after brick I lay. 

The cherished world closed off.
