Liking my Own Company 


I’m not lonely anymore now, I just like to be alone.

If you need me you can get me, I’ll always have my phone.

I’ve got used to my own company, I don’t worry what I say.

If you interrupt my solitude, you’ll have to go away.

It’s funny being by yourself, you have no one to blame.

No one turns the TV over, as that’s the greatest pain.

One plate and pan for washing up, a minute or so to do.

It’s not that I’m not interested, not that I don’t like you.

I’ve just got rather long in the tooth, prefer my own company.

So do me a favour and bugger off,  I’m happier when it’s only me.

  1. Yeah, it looks like a bit direct, haha… terrific! I loved every word of it, your rhyme and the awesome determination in rejecting someone else, to keep your own intimacy, your precious solitude. I feels so good when you realize you have learned to live alone by yourself.

  2. What a great little post, I was honesty just thinking how much better I am at dealing with my own company these days when years ago I would have crumbled and been miserable now I enjoy time to myself! In a hectic mum sort of way 😉
