Lusting for Peace

My unsettled mind
The undying lust for peace
None can hear my cries
I am being consumed,
by the absent reality,
which calls to me
from the abyss
The darkness
takes me in
I yearn for peace
although I’ve sinned
Make me whole again
Please will someone listen
I’m empty inside
I need to dine
on nature’s beauty,
kindness, honesty
love and tenderness,
trust and understanding
I need freedom,
acceptance and knowledge
But most of all,
I need companionship
Someone I can depend on
when times are tough
I need to fill my soul
with these before I
can be at peace.
