Leave Me in Quiet Places

Thomasine Dye

 

Leave me in quiet places

Silence is a cold and maddening thing

Leave me in freezing places

No one would ever come for me, he said

Leave me in hopeless places

Hell is the death of hope

Leave me in hellish places

The Hell I always knew I deserved

Leave me in destined places

I am destined to be empty

Leave me in empty places

All is empty, all is meaningless

Leave me in meaningless places
