I left the light on in my head
To let you know that I am home,
So leave a message on my phone.
I can't come to the door right now,
My feelings are getting in the way,
That I'll need time to be okay.
Don’t try to ring my phone,
My demons will hang up,
I'm not being rude
So do not misconstrue
My silence is evident enough.
Don’t try to send a text my way,
For it is easy for me to deny,
Seem so absurd
To warrant a reply.
Come back tomorrow please,
Where the day will be anew,
Any company with you.
