I love to be with people
But I hate the noise
My ideal would be a crowded bar
Clicked to watch on mute

Smiles, frowns, glasses overturned
A pint thrown across the room
Shattering silently
A chaos without a backbone

Sit next to me
Breathe with me
But don’t you dare
Pollute my silence
With words spilling out
Of your whore mouth

Let me think
Let me breathe
Let me feel

I am enough on my own
Don’t suffocate me with
Your you-ness
But please don’t leave
