Cover Me

Cover me with roses

Cover me with pearls

Turn all of my light off

Let me lie and curl

Cover me with blankets

Cover me with lace

I “breath in”  dark and silence

Dream of elegance and grace

Cover me with solitude

Make the demands all stop

I can’t meet them today

I am all covered

Toe to top

Cover me with blankets

Cover me with pearls

I’m not the one they think

I am a tired little girl

Cover me with nothing

Cover me with all

I am not really here

You will not catch me when I fall

Cover me and leave me

Take sensation all away

The mental torment also

I’ll not come out to play

Cover me with roses

Cover me with pearls

Leave me to my solitude

I am not of the world

      Thank you for reading. Sometimes the best poetry comes out of strong emotion like sadness. I wrote it a few months ago.

        You’re welcome! Sadness can be very powerful for an artist. Some of one’s best work will result from deep sadness, I find. And work that results from deep sadness can often be very healing.
