Alone is just where some belong .......verse

I might sit and listen to every word you say
without speaking
only when you're done one or two
small wisdoms of tweaking

I might give a hug that you think
is too long or too tight and make you wonder
make you ponder of my heart
and what lies under

Or you might get jealous of my smile
or the innocuous touch of my hand
but then it is of my solitude that helps me
to understand

Perhaps this need for others
is but to reinforce this curse of self
you just may need me more yet
I sit upon this shelf

I wish I could be all things to all
hearts but that's merely where I succumb
it is in solitude where I retreat
to solitude I will run
