Where You Like It

When people come to your room
You shrink, you hide
Their white outfits are wrong, different
From yours
You start to work, quickly and quietly
A wall, a barrier, something to
Stop them
Getting to you, those voices fade
As a pain in your leg becomes apparent
Its sharp and it spreads
You embrace it, that pain
Those voices fade, peace returns
Darkness surrounds, once again
alone, trapped in your own mind,
Where you like it.
