Every time I decide
to look into the mirror
I usually do not like
that which stares back

I see flaws 
and defects
things I fear
everyone does

I am shy of rejection
and do not want
to be hurt
or hurt others

so I climb
high up into my castle
far beyond reach
just to be alone

for being alone
is better than
being surrounded by people
who make you feel lonely.
