Go Away

Why can't I be left alone?

What do you not get about the words "go away"?

Why doesn't anyone understand me?

What are you doing, saying that you understand everything I'm going through?

Why are you still here?

What do you mean, "you care about what happens to me"?

Why do you care about me?

What word doesn't get pass your skull? Go away.

Why won't you leave?

You want to know what's wrong?

Why do you try to understand me?

You honestly think you can help me?

Why won't you leave me alone?

No more questions.

I'll tell you what I need.

I need you to go away.

I need you to stop understanding me.

I need you to stop caring about me.

Now, for the last time.

Go away.

I can also relate to this because I have a teacher who is always so worried about me... then if I'm not in the mood to chat she sometimes thinks I'm mad at her... and sometimes I just want to be left alone, and scream, "go away!!" lol except she is still the nicest and best teacher ever... :))

great poem! I really like it :)

you have no idea how well i can relate to this poem. sometimes i just want to punch people in the face because of the questions they ask. a lot of people don't care about your feelings, they're just nosy and want to know what's going on so they can gossip about it to a whole bunch of other peoplee .
