let me be alone
I want to lock up all doors
Hatch up all windows
Pull down the drapes
And sit aimlessly on the couch.
I’d rather dwell without company
If company only wreaks havoc in my house.
I’m tired of cleaning up the remnants,
The broken glasses and stained sheets,
I cannot tell anymore.
I’d rather not let the sunlight in
If it must only burn me.
I’d rather not let the wind blow in
If it must only choke me.
If I can stand without falling in a locked-up home
Then let me be
Alone. Alone. Alone.
