A winter's dayIn a deep and darkDecemberI am aloneGazing from my window to the streets belowOn a freshly fallen silent shroud of snowI am a rockI am an islandI've built wallsA fortress deep and mightyThat none may penetrateI have no need of friendship, friendship causes painIt's laughter and it's loving I disdainI am a rockI am an islandDon't talk of loveBut I've heard the words beforeIt's sleeping in my memoryI won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have diedIf I never loved I never would have criedI am a rockI am an islandI have my booksAnd my poetry to protect meI am shielded in my armorHiding in my room, safe within my wombI touch no one and no one touches meI am a rockI am an islandAnd a rock feels no painAnd an island never cries
