Always watching – ever present,

never a moment of peace.

I long for the quiet,

the housewives dream;

no privacy, always eyes watching,

with a question or a request.


Leave me alone – let me be,

to read my books and write my words.

Let me listen to my music,

sad and soulful.


Let me sit in my garden

and watch the flowers

dance in the summer breeze.

Let me be -just for a while.


Stop watching, stop minding

and let me be.

Let me have my privacy.


Alone with my thought and memories.

Alone with my daydreams and visionaries.


Leave me in my solitude,

alone and in love with my dreams.
