Day after Day

Hiding in my house

so no one can see,

my escape route worked out

in case I have to flee.

I am afraid to communicate

with anyone else,

there is nowhere to go

where I can be myself.

Left to my own devices

I always fall down,

just like if I was at sea

I would surely drown.

I am living this life

in the knowledge it is for keeps

as the days pass slowly

and the night time creeps.

Living like this day after day

is a sorry existence

but it takes a lot of

will power and persistence.
