there is a place i default to
a place i go when i am hurt
it is a place of pure nothing
but it serves its purpose well

when everything goes awry
i will withdraw from it all
stuff my feelings in a box
and pretend i don't exist

but this place will only hurt me
can i do this to myself
when everything falls apart
i am stronger than all this

and so i will bravely face
the things i used to ignore
bring back my emotions
and i will then unwithdraw 

The End
