Dour Company

Oh leave me be
Leave me be-

-I cry out in silence;

It is enough to bear the pain the world lashes upon my back,
Held upright, but driven forward
By gifts, gifts to quell the curses-

But oh leave me be
When the lash is in mine own hand,
Oh leave me be you thoughts that pain 
And you sharp pangs of regret
Your dread company is no comfort to a weary heart,
To a shaking lip
Your caress is no reason to still

For you bring me no gifts,
You bring only curses
And in my life, 
In my life I have no want for curses-

So please
Leave me be
I cannot bear your fell company.

But oh, I am dour company indeed
And still I cannot leave myself be.
