Leave Me Alone


Leave me alone

To wallow in my tears

To wrestle my demons

To battle my fears


Leave me alone

You cannot be so close

The deeper I fall

The darker it grows


Leave me alone

I do not need your help

I have died this death

Many times by myself


Leave me alone

So, the bottom I find

Scratching and clawing

To hold onto my mind


Leave me alone

To make peace with the past

To quiet the ghosts

In the horrors that last


Leave me alone

I promise to return

When the fire is out

And the evil has burned


Leave me alone

As hard as it may be

Until I can find

The part that is me


Leave me alone

This pain you cannot share

This mantle is one

That only I can bear

    I will always give you whatever time you need, but will remind you that whenever you do need someone to reach out to, I will always be here for you. ❤

  3. I’ve said this before, in a number of ways: When I am overcome by the darkness, I don’t want, and will refuse, any hand that reaches out to me. What I need in that time is simply someone who has the courage to sit in that darkness with me. Only when someone else shows me that he/she is not afraid of my darkness am I able to begin to lessen its hold of fear on me and find my way out. (I don’t know if this will make sense, but I don’t know how else to word it.)
