Leave me alone

Leave me alone
Can't you see my desire
To be on my own
Warm beside the fire

I couldn't be much plainer
About my choice to be
Alone on this recliner
Stay away from me

Don't bother trying
I'm not in the mood
I just feel like crying
Hassling me is rude

Tomorrow might be different
Leave me alone today
I'm ok on my own at present
Come back another day


The photo is the prompt for The Mag week 151; I can't wait to read all Tue inspired writings.

Perfect summation.

This person is certainly shutting out the world. Good take.

Gail said...

That's the message I got. Good job.

Charleen said...

There is something quite obstinate about this lone figure. I like how you can hear this attitude in the voice of your poem.

Susie Clevenger said...

Love interpreted the image so well...leave me alone.

Dave King said...

You catch the mood exactly. Bravo!

Little Nell said...

Oh yes the signals are loud and clear. I enjoyed this.

Helen said...

Not likely ... we enjoy your poetry!!

Sue said...

We've all been there. A mood well expressed!


Karen S. said...

Oh yes, sing it to me again! Same song, different artist, is just how we live sometimes isn't it. I like looking in and seeing how others see and reflect in what I see- very reflective poem, bravo!

Katherine said...

Yup...that's what i saw when I first looked at the picture too. Nicely rhymed!

Don't we all have days like this? Well done.
