Let me be in my own space

Without touch or words

Or your presence filling the room

Let me crawl away into a quiet corner

Where nothing can invade my sweet solitude

Donít call my name or wonder where I am

Just release the chains for a while

And leave me to untangle

The knots of this day

Without you chiding me with unneeded advice

I have to cry alone

And wring my hands

So you donít witness the pain

And turn on me as you soak up my grief
