My Private Life

What matters to me most
is my privacy
my life, my world
without intrusion
by your probing eyes
like a bear’s at night
seeking the secrets
I hold most dear
and by your snout
sniffing for my inner life.
deeper than even
I know—
let me be alone
among my thoughts
don’t bother me
and keep your secrets
to yourself
inside your lair.
