Stepping Off To The Side

It really seems to upset people that I do better alone.
I don't understand it, perhaps I never will.
This need to drag others into your life.
They will join you if they want to.
You don't choose love.
It chooses you.
Many times in your life.
Going under the knife.
Go ahead dissect my emotions.
Tell me how lonely and miserable I am.
My faults are obvious like a previously broken knee.
But I will not play or prey upon others emotions.
Wrapping them up in this suffocating blanket that keep getting thrown on me.
I'm sorry but it is just not that cold tonight.
Yes I'm lonesome aren't we all?
But I do not desire or want anyones pity.
My needs, are a matter of heart and mind.
And that's not everyone can provide.
Sometimes you have to realize that you can't help and step aside.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
