My Bedroom

The door of my bedroom is closed
Sunlight filters in through the curtain
I quietly lie down in bed
In this my sweet little haven

My cozy warm bedroom is safe
I feel my soul is truly free
No one dares to harm me in here
The whole world can just let me be

I pull up the covers real tight
As I hug close my teddy bear
I revert to being a child
A child with no worry or care

My eyes wonder around the room
But focus on a memory 
My rapid breathing evens out
As I relive sweet history

The people outside of my room
Leave me filled with stifling fear
I am left confused and unsure
As I brush away a stray tear

I’ve forgotten how to mingle
Socializing just gives me stress
Whatever I may say or do
Leaves me an emotional mess

Yet here in my room I am free
To converse with great eloquence
I talk to me, myself, and I
With such amazing confidence

I simply write and write and write
I resolve to love, laugh and live
I have not a single worry
About what I should do or give

Do you think that I’m a recluse?
A modern day hermit, you say?
It could be, but this I do know
I’m having a wonderful day!

    Every poem as a little of my soul in it. I have to be true to myself first, and then try top please others. Your body is the judge...what a fascinating phrase. Your poetry is lovely....It doesn't need already has spirit.

    :) Bet you say that to all the girls! ;) A woman can't ever be OVER flattered, at least not I. :) Sorry I couldn't respond sooner. I am a language teacher at Middle East University and my work load this semester is hectic. I'm falling behind. :( Was in classes most of the day. Now, I'm in my office gaining strength to go home. Draining...thanks, Ian. I love getting your posts.
