Blame It On Me

I soak in sun,
for 15 minutes,
an hour,
another 15 minutes,
and curl up in my hole
in the ground
when I can’t
I might as well
be a mole,
except I’m not,
I tried,
I cried invisible
tears in the darkness,
I tried bringing
the sun down with me,
I should have known
bringing anything
down to my depths
would fail,
I am not a mole person,
and if that’s my fault,
I will carry that badge
with pride, yes it’s a badge
not baggage,
I’m a person and not
a mole person,
