Treasure Island

Asper Reynolds

Leave Me Alone

I am not lazy
I honestly don't know if I'm crazy
Spent every minute for at least a year in physical pain
Watching my dreams circle the drain
Saying goodbye to people too soon
Fighting for the strength just to leave my room
I am exhausted right now
Don't tell me to get over it because I don't know how
If you can't be there for me then leave me the hell alone
I have a fight to win, I guess on my own

    Totally understand your feelings and emotions in this poem. Have recently been to hell
    and back having had many operations and the major pain that came with them. Was in a
    coma and on life support - still trying to figure out how to come back, don't know how.
    Your last line - If you can't be there for me then leave me the hell alone I have a fight to
    win, I guess on my own - totally strikes home. It's good to know I'm not alone when it
    comes to what I feel inside. Thank you so much for sharing! RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Sometimes people have a very difficult time relating to someone who feels too much. Won you have. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
