my fortress

the walls are climbing
up on every side
second by second
they rise higher

and I sit back,
thread my fingers
behind my head and
gaze at the monstrosity

not a care crosses
my mind,
I am trapped inside
not helpless,
not hopeless,
buoyed at the solitude

if I can not get out
nothing can get in
