Dignity : Isolation

All I said...
Pick no flowers,
plant no roses at my side.

All I asked for...
When I am silent,
speak to me from your heart.

All I wish...
Respond to you perhaps,
but I leave it to you to appreciate its need.

All I seek...
An alternative,
when silence is not preferred.

All I promise...
I shall be so,
while you speak with your eyes.

All I shall be...
Unfortunately still breathing,
living in isolation amidst people around.
