Cocoon

I am making a cocoon

First, I harden my heart

then my brain

my eyes go blank then close

no tears escape

for my tear ducts are hardened as well

Sheets come next

wrapped tight around my legs, body, face

the final layer is a comforter

though it offers little comfort

it does shield me from the world

I will never leave my bed again
