The coverings were for warmth.
The wrappings were for protection.
The coverings were for isolation.
The wrappings were for insulation.
You put on a mantle that protects you from the biting cold.
You wrap yourself into a tight ball in a bid to shield yourself from the cutting indifference.
You isolate yourself from the source of perceived pain.
You go inwards to insulate yourself from the demeaning glance.
I am traversing a desert.
You are lonely in a crowd.
I am battling the raging storm.
You feel isolated while in good company.
Turn the lights on and see me.
Please turn off your prejudice and see us.
