Recluse (posted to Facebook on 7/17/08)

Sitting in a box
Watching my sanity sink beneath rocks
While breathing in toxic air
With a crystalline stare
At everything lost--
Thoughts of how much it cost.

I told them to go,
To leave me dead to the world in the snow
Of this winter unending
For their laughter was rending
My heart to the grave
With no pieces to save.

And now I rue
All the things that I said to them and to you
Because nothing's here
But my imperfect fear...
It's my fault I'm alone;
I need saving...and home.
