Please shield me from myself.
Hide me deep into your soul.
Keep me safe from my thoughts.
Blanket me, protect me.
Keep me blind to reality.
Keep the silence around.
I don’t want to hear the sound of my thoughts.
Can’t you see that my tears are the dew that fall upon the ground?
I feel safer with only you around.
Please comfort my soul.
Allow me to live in your land of nothingness.
Let me explore your mysteries.
So I can let go of my tendencies.
Never to see the light of day again.
Please be my last friend.
Oh so motionless and stuck in time.
I don’t know how to control these thoughts of mine.
Your silence is so welcome, so comforting.
Peace be mine.
Peace be still.
I cry out your name.
Keep me close.
I am afraid.
I am in emotional pain.
Will you beg me stay?
I refuse to let you send me away.
I am going to close my eyes.
I am going to fade away.
Before I leave, I would like to thank you.
Thank you for not sending me away.
I am closing my eyes to create my own night.
You can go away now.
Death is coming and I will be alright.
