Cold Air

by Sadie

Whenever I’m alone

I try to hide away.

Find some distraction

Or cover my eyes.

But that doesn’t help.

There is a window

That doesn’t close.

I shut the curtains

But air slips in through the gaps.

Just like you.

Always coming back to haunt me

No matter what I do.

The air is too cold for comfort

And my hands start to shiver.

Please, don’t come in here no more.
