    What I seek is Peace….
    Peace with myself,
    Peace with the decision I have made…
    To leave you
    As much as it hurts me, as much as I long for you….
    I must go
    For you hurt me so.
    You hurt me dear lover
    Dear friend
    Emotionally and verbally you murdered me
    A pain that always found a home in my heart
    Until there was no more room to store it…..
    And the Lord intercepted.
    What I seek is peace
    Peace within me
    To love me, and love me, and love me…..
    To finally be okay with me for a change….without you
    To be my own number one fan
    To Embrace the things within me,
    That were just beginning to blossom when I met you
    A young girl,
    Tender and naïve,
    I let you into my spirit
    Not knowing how it would over take mine.
    I gave you enough energy to light up a city….
    If I could somehow…someway get the energy back…that I put out,
    I could be something great
    Something thing terrific, something phenomenal.
    How will I gain back energy spent?
    Where will I get a new energy?

    I seek peace, oh Lord, I seek peace…
    Help me, discover the peace with in me.

    Getting that energy back, won't be easy as when you gave him your light, but that light still lives inside of you. I feel a power surge coming on. Feeling this vibe, poetess.

    half way there

    peace is hard to obtain within

    you have to shut the rat-race persona down somehow

    but it is within reach trust me

    and you will get there


    peace and love poet

    :congrats:

    forth that peace u seek u already know
    with faith and love unto self it will flow
    to leave pain and gain hope
    is the gift of above wit a wide scope
    for he so love thee , will comfort thee
    as u allow a new light a beginning to inite
    as energy is restored keep da faith
    for all u seek is there .....look again in da mirror
    da reflection u see is energy on a power surge
    look again deeper

    hmmm....mystery man...I see you have pulled back one of mine. Yes. I certainly was in a place of pain, but relief at this time back in June....an yes, I have found that peace. And it feels very very good. I just need someone to share it with me....if only I would open my heart unto him. What he doesn't know....is that I am falling....very deeply and quickly. but I shall not tell him just yet. Or have I?
