The Safe Room

I could learn to live in a room like this. 

Low ceilings, narrow window. I could learn to stoop and make myself small. 

No room in this chamber for other bodies,

done by design so I can go unseen,

so I'd never have to worry about being described behind my back,

being slashed across the achiles heel. 

Better this shruken life than having my soul raided

if I dared to open its lid. 

What you don't know can't hurt you.

In this small room, I can only hurt yourself.
