Peace Eludes Me

I can't seem to find peace

no matter where I turn

Its elusive, avoiding me

It runs and hides like the sun

being chased by black clouds

Every time I get close enough to find it

It slips away so quietly

Leaving me searching for it

in the darkest corners of my mind

Peace, where are you, why won't you

hold me in your arms

sing to me in your sweet comforting voice

I need to feel you close to me

my sanity is slipping away ever so quickly

If you are out there, please let me know

Give my a reason not to slit my throat

The grave is calling me it says peace is here

I fear my peace may lie there
