A Safe Place

I wander the night
Afraid to stand still
Home is not safe
The air holds a chill

My eyes flit around
Darting like mice
Watching wearily
My hands feel like ice

I shiver and chitter 
From more than just cold
My feet shuffle slowly
Fear barely controlled

I finally reach it
A place that’s secure
Cold, dark and uncomfortable
But I will endure

    Sounds like jail. You need some cheer. Your poem does evoke cold desperation.
