A Poem

Candles burning

Portraying my anger

The resentment I feel

When you won’t leave

When I need time

When I need space

From all evidence of

Your very being

Making sounds that get

Underneath my skin

Moving objects

Out of place

And never putting them

Back again

I try to stare off

Into space

Go to a land that

Only I know

Where everything

Is just because

I want it to be so

Yet I hear your laugh

Or talk

Or sneeze

And sometimes

It just rattles me

Out of this land

I long to be

Your human nature

Just irritates me
