Who Can Say?
i don't want to be with you
or anybody else right now
it's summer time and skies are blue
and brightly lit, i wonder how.
i pray for rain and thunderstorms,
a life of comfort reading books
inside a home that's safe and warm
away from greedy probing looks
even if it's in my head
and none of this is taking place,
i feel i have to run instead
of calmly keeping up the pace.
to you or whom it may concern:
i need to be alone right now
for just awhile, until i learn
to remedy my furrowed brow.
