To sleep in peace is all I desire

To sleep in peace is all I desire english poems

The music doesn’t seem right anymore,
the songs seem all the same,
breaths that I take
feel like herculean tasks.
To keep my eyes open
and to think,
makes me wish
I could be a vegetable,
feels I am in a coma,
feels everything is a dream,
a nightmare,
that I am unable to wake up from.

I get chased down by demons,
I get raped by emotions,
I get defiled by feelings,
I get debauched by guilt,
I get castrated by desire,
I see gloom all around,
I feel myself breaking
into a million pieces,
with each piece
questioning its authenticity,
I feel I am in coma.

To sleep in peace is all I desire
To sleep in peace is all I desire

Inner Peace

Inner Peace ode

The snow fell quietly on the little hill with the softness of swan feathers, blanketing the ground around the tiny log cabin. Wispy drifts cascaded down the roof and gathered around the windowsills as if to cradle the tiny abode
