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, From wine or tears or blood, 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.
