Leave Me Alone!

Poem By Scarborough Gypsy

I’d like to awake
Without being woken
To just sit and think
With no word spoken
Allow me some time
To have on my own
When no one comes round
Or calls on the phone
I’d just like some space
Some privacy for me
I’d like to be left
With no company
To go to the bathroom
And not be disturbed
To put on my hairdryer
Without being heard
To lay in my bed
Minus the dogs
To cruise round the house
Without any tog’s
Let doors that I shut
Remain unopened
And none of my things
Be moved or broken
A special room
To call my own
A private place
To be alone
Lay back, relax
Chill out, just be
With no one else
Except for me.

I think this is a classic heh A year after reading it for the first time, it still makes me smile... Hope your environment has improved since...
Truly relate Gyps, this is good...
Who of us who have families hasen't longed for 'a place' to escape to, to get away from everything that pulls at us? ? ? Well Said. Scarlett

Forty Is An 'F' Word

I look into the mirror
By accident these days
For it’s not my own reflection
That meets my startled gaze

Cup Of Rain

He’s written his rules
In invisible ink
She’s thirsty for answers
But can’t get a drink

Love In A Teacup

Shop of curiosity, dimly lit within
wall to wall and floor to ceiling,
a museum full of memories
bursting at the seams,

Digitally Correct

I lay awake in my bed
Awaiting only sleep
Last cycle of the dish machine
Stopped – and then went BEEEEP!

Alcohol Abuse Is Not An Addiction

Am so afraid of how you feel
Listening to what you’ve said
Chills me to the bone
Our whole existence is on shaky ground

Deep Within

Once again alone and lost,
This empty feeling is the cost
Of many regrets and dreams I’ve tossed
Onto the heap of mental compost,
