Sometimes, the mind is quite intricate and perplexing, creating much thought but overwhelms us with its beauty, all at once.
Searching for Peace
The disturbing scenes that replay
in a troubled mind,
make a serene peace so hard to find.
A bright light flickers on…
and then quickly…off.
Raging emotions run incredibly wild,
until numbness completely
freezes a tired mind.
An intricate spellbinding mind,
carries such beauty,
I so despise
the peace that you make so hard to find.
A searching hand reaches out into a lonely black darkness
feeling so blind in a world
where everyone is on auto pilot
and I …am standing still.
Oh lovely mind,
we keep doing this repetitive dance
So dramatically slow in tune with mellow music,
but then you increase your tempo
as I fall to the dense cold floor,
leaving me …defeated.
My aching heart stands frozen still
For I am waiting to breathe life,
where peace is no longer hard to find.
you bring such enchanting beauty
but within a suffering soul,
you birth a wavering perplexity.
In a cloudy fog of uncertainty
as troublesome scenes of life are put on replay,
I can only patiently dance with a careful composure
in this brutal storm…
those organized steps will
lead me to that
that has been so hard to find.
