So you caught me in this reverie,
There at home where I could stay for hours.
You thought I was trapped from within.

I won't blame you, if you couldn't notice
That my aloneness was filled
Richer than all the madnesses and frenzies
You all live in.

The austere discomfort I am coiled in
Beneath that hole on the ceiling
Is a whole universe of fancies
And the sweetest haven for heart and soul.

It’s a painting of yourself, right? This is possibly my favourite picture of all time. I saw it some years ago and couldn’t find it again. Seeing it again today has lifted me so much, I’m elated!
