I can think whatever I like

You can

My internal world is my sanctuary

It is

Nobody can see inside my head

No

My mind is free

I see you

About the Creator

Caroline Jane

Warm-blooded vertebrate, domesticated with a preference for the wild. Howls at the moon and forages on the dark side of it. Laughs like a hyena. Fuelled by good times and fairy dust. Writes obsessively with no holes barred.
