What is There Now

Where am I? 
Floating in a void of nothingness,
Spiraling out of control, 
Losing all grasp on reality,
Slowly sinking into my cocoon,
Hiding from the people around me, 
Quickly building a barrier around me,
No one can get in, no one can get out.
Where does that leave me?
Feeling numb with anticipation,
Locked up inside my head,
Everyone turning away,
Pushing everyone away,
Unable to express the truth,
Locking myself away.
Slowly becoming insane.
But why?
Why Hide the key,
Why run away,
What use is there to try and escape,
Why be so alone.....
The answer?
Because its better,
Than being hurt by the people,
Your family,
Your friends,
Your lovers,
Your pets, 
The people who surrounded you.
The people who can hurt you the most.
