be with me


“i need to be alone”

often sounds like something is wrong,

like you are not enjoying

all the people around you,

that they are upsetting you

or bothering you

or, even worse, boring you.

it doesn’t sound polite,

or nice

to say “i can’t come out tonight”

because i would rather be with me

than you.

but i need me

all alone sometimes

all to myself.

i need to hear my thoughts

feel my presence

in an empty room.

i need this

so that when i come back to you

i have a me to give.
