Nope, not today

The sunlight creeps in.
I shut the blinds abruptly and
pull the covers over my head
more tightly.

Come out and play.

On my back rides heartbreak.
So, I succumb to the fatigue
hand in hand with sadness,
held hostage by darkness.

never released,
always buried
eventually exhumed
consuming me,
burning anyone
that gets too close
Leave me,
I don't want to
