Alone

Marian Marsh in "Svengali"

I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not defined by another person.
-Oscar Wilde

A-L-O-N-E

Inside my room
I wait and see
what’s in store
today for me.

Don’t be tapping
at my door
I won’t open
it anymore.

It’s safe to say
leave me alone,
just go away,
nobody’s home.

Because no one
worries if I
live or maybe
if I should die.

But hark, what’s that?
A gentle tap?
A knock? A whack?
A quiet rap?

Who’s there? Who’s there?
Is someone near,
and at my door?
Don’t leave, I’m here!
