Vanilla World March 29, 2012

years ago i created a vanilla world

my safe zone to shelter me from the noise

A cocoon to  hold me, tight and warm, out of harm’s way

But what was once warm and safe

now feels binding and tight, like a noose around my neck

The sameness of vanilla sickens me now

makes me want to splash my world with a color explosion

shake up the sameness that once felt so secure.

    I need a place to feel safe and secure.
