Seclusion

Seclusion

I am me and not you

My life is my own

My body out of reach

Stay out of my zone

I am not your property

Even though you’re hopeful

I need to sequester myself

I fear I will be woeful

 

Even if I just take a snooze

It will be for the shortest time

If you look at the percentage

It is not out of line

Such a small part of my day

To take for myself

Please just imagine me

As if I’m on a shelf

 

I’m so weary from challenges

Peace and quiet is what I yearn

Let me rest alone

I promise you I will not spurn

Sometimes I give too much

You become complacent

A little time for myself

And you become impatient
