Loners Need Space

Written by: Tom Wright

I frequently have a day,
When I merely need space;
To clear my mind of things,
And get thoughts in place.

I've little to talk about,
No worthwhile thing to share.
Eyes frozen on something,
I just sit, think, and stare.

I think about moot things,
Or perhaps friends I've known.
Dredged deep from my past,
For whom fondness has grown.

So don't take it personal,
Those times when I seem distant.
I just desire some space,
That's why I'm resistant.
