Almost safe inside my sanctuary -

it's not that I'm afraid of solitude.

Yes, there is loneliness, but why delude

myself?  In my heart, I must stay wary.

 

People will hurt you once your guard is down.

Hurt upon hurt - it gets hard to repair.

Still, I find that, in the end, I do care.

With no lifebelt, I fear that I might drown.

 

I just don't know the answers anymore -

as if I ever did.  Does anyone?

Select a star to make a wish upon.

Remember not to double-lock the door.

 

I thought that I'd be safe here but I'm not.

I sense the final chapters in "their" plot.
