Leave Me Alone

by Takiyah Douglas


I’m really tired,

And I’ve just spent hours on the phone

Convincing my mom I’m not pregnant,

So Leave Me Alone.


Can you believe this shit?

My Drunkle (drunk uncle) has eaten me out of house and home.

I was supposed to have Taco Tuesday.

Just Leave Me Alone.


What is going on?

This number is unknown,

I need to know who he’s talking to,

Can You Leave Me Alone?


I was doing my morning workout,

Man I was in the zone!

Until I tripped over my shoelaces

You Can Leave Me Alone.
