I seal myself inside. Inside the blankets. Inside the sheets. Soft pillows act as my fortress. I barricade myself from the world. Tucked away. In the dark. There is nothing that I cannot do when I am in here. No limitations or prying questions. I lay in the dark, and dream with the imagination of a child. I crush my feet down onto the pavement with large footsteps and no one says a word. These are all stories I tell myself. Nestled far away. Lonely and quiet. I listen to the music as it sooths me to sleep. I close my eyes, and rest in the knowledge that I will be left silent. I slip off into sleep. In the morning, I wake cold and restless. My nightmares giving me cause to fear what hovers around me in the unknown wilderness. I keep to myself, and never storm the castle or fight with the dragons. But, next to me I carry an invisible sword.
