Recluse

At every doorway you hesitate,

These doors are open,

Sunlight rushes in to kiss your face,

The world outside awaits,

They ask you what you’re waiting for,

As walls you build around you,

Move in closer every day,

You find comfort in restriction,

Close the blinds, hide away,

Inside your prison, familiarity,

You hold the keys to the cage,

Even as you wander,

The corridors of your mind,

The world hurries by without you,

If I could tear a slit in your comfort zone,

Let the light flood back in, I would,

So, you could remember how it was,

When you were free,

So you could remember,

When smiles came easily.
