Disjointed thoughts run through my head;
I dont know how to stop them.
Twisted visions come unbidden.
I shake my head, blinking, but they remain.
Weird multicolored dreams disrupt my sleep.
I have no feelings of ending it,
I just want the pain to stop.
I want this macabre merry-go-round
to ground to halt,
the atonal music to still.
Inner peace is what I seek;
Calm silence what I yearn for.
I will have to dream it.
Adrift on a leaf-shaped boat
upon a placid sea,
the only sound the gentle lapping
of the water against the sides.
Floating serenely toward my haven,
I close my eyes and relax into reverie.
