When you curl up into your cave
And you bring the curtain round
Say to the world, stay outside
Say to me, you too
You especially
Am I to keep knocking?

Uninvited guest
Crashing the party where
I am the subject of opinions
You take a risk
When you leave me
Out in the elements
What if I rust
And die?

And when you come looking
I'll be gone, hurt, dead
Will you recognise my corpse
Who will I resemble
after the rain?

If the truth be told
Leave me not in the cold.

Oct, '10
