Please go away, I don’t mean to be rude
I don’t want your kind words
Or another platitude.
Why don't you just stay away from my place
I don’t want you round here:
Don’t need you in my face
I’m hurting okay, let me deal with my pain
Please don’t make me have to ask you
To go away again.
I do understand that you only mean well
But I need time on my own now
To work through this hell.
Why won’t you just listen to what I have to say?
I’m fine now, believe me
I really am okay
Sure, it’s been rough for the past day or two:
Give me time and space to deal with it
And I will pull through.
It’s not the pain that’s the killer, it’s being on my own
You know I have never done well with
Being left all alone
That’s not an invitation for you to hang around every day
You’ll just get on my nerves
And you’ll get in the way.
Please don’t keep pressuring me to change my mind
I don’t mean to be hurtful
Or seem ungrateful or unkind.
Just go away until I feel more like talking to you
I know it’s not what you want
But it’s what I need you to do.
Please leave me alone and just let me be
I need time to grieve and regroup now
I need space to be me.
