Do Not Disturb

I must hang a “Do not Disturb” sign
On the door of my heart.
My heart is troubled enough as it is.
Do not disturb.

Oh please...just walk on by
The resident inside
Is in an induced blissful sleep 
Do not disturb her slumber 
for perhaps.....
in her solitude...
She has found her haven.
Do not disturb!

Do not disturb her...
With your lies
With your alibis
With your flattery
With your mockery
With your demands
With your commands 
Do not disturb

Hush now....
Take your hand off the latch
Tread softly
For I wish to sleep
And not to weep
Do not Disturb...
All is peace within
To disturb is a sin
I’ve found my sanctuary
Safe from harm
And deceptive charm
Let me be...
Do not disturb
Do NOT disturb
My heart is in recovery!
