Safe in my Head

Poetry By: amoretrainer

Is it better to stay in your head than come out and face the real world?

I spend a lot of time in my head these days

I've been called a deep thinker and well, hey

Is that all bad to be in your mind

(I guess, that depends on what you will find)

You probably want to know why i'm there

i'll come out for a bit but only to share

Flames left ashes and scars to be healed

when down came my heart it was left in a seal

Oh yearn yes I do, to love outside gates,

but locked in my head is the only place safe

And yes it is true you'll never know too

I kept my love wrapped in a box just for you

Maybe someday I'll leave my inner world

You think it's what I need; you don't know this girl

I'll stand to defend my fence painted blue

And you'll be a theft, stealing, I would hate you

So leave me to defend staying in my mind

And maybe one day with the passing of time

to open my heart I'll open my mind

And fear not the real world of what I will find

Maybe it's better to feel pain that's real

then never really know of what's meant to be

But I'm not convinced so here I will stay

this deeper thinker I am I like it this way!
