A Shrugging Off

Leave me sitting on my own;
      Let me write and be.
I'd rather be here all alone
      than have you torment me.
I find peace in my own thoughts
      without a telling mind.
I know you wish I would have sought
      what thoughts you had to find,
though I did not; I let you go
      without a syllable.
It will not show, although you know
      how I sit so miserable.
