[rev. Aug. 19, 2013]

A winters day in a deep and dark December
I am alone
Gazing from my window into the streets below
On a freshly fallen, silent shroud of snow
I am a rock
I am an island

Don't talk of love, well I've heard the word before
It is sleeping in my memory
I won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have died
If I never loved I never would have cried
I am a rock
I am an island

I have my books and my poetry to content me
I am shielded in my armor
Deep within my room, safe within my womb
I touch no one and no one touches me
I am a rock
I am an island

And a rock feels no pain
And an island never cries
