Peace

As the sun sets

I feel some peace

At last

How I wish that it would stay

When the sun shines I feel the panic

My heart starts to race

These feelings I cannot control

These feelings I cannot face

What do you do

When you can no longer run

You have to look back and see

Everything you have done

Watch yourself as you fell

Into the depths of hell

I am so grateful for this moment

This moment of peace

Nyx

This world inside my dream

Today I see the sun

It shines through the trees

I watch as the leaves fall

I feel the breeze

I try to find within myself

The strength I know is there

I want to find my home

In my mind I take myself there

To another place and time

To this world inside my mind

To this world that is my dream

Not today not tomorrow

It’s somewhere lost you see

Maybe someday I will find

The path that leads me to my destiny

Nyx

Hope

In my mind I see

No clear path before me

I push forward

Every day

Hoping I will find the way

Hoping that the emptiness will subside

Hoping that the pain will stop

I try to live in each moment

With hope in my heart

That I will find the peace I seek

That I will find my home

Nyx

On my own

I am still floating in the air

I will not know where I am going

Until I get there

What do you do

When the world crashes down

Where do you turn

When no ones around

I keep walking forward

Somehow I do

Some days are so hard

Just to live through

Maybe some day I will find my home

Until then I will continue to walk forward

On my own

Nyx

Not slowing down

One door closes

As another opens

I have chosen to walk forward

Picking paths as I go

Not slowing down

Until I have found

What I am looking for

Nyx

Move on

I feel the tall grass between my fingers

As I walk along the path

My heartache lingers

As I realize I can never turn back

I see the stream as it flows forward

Centering myself today

I have to live in the moment

I have to keep myself calm

It is the only way

That I can move on

Nyx

Memories of you and I

I see the bridge

So beautiful

So bright

I see the lights

Reflect off the water

As the day

Turns into night

I see the clouds fade away

And the stars start to shine

This is when I remember

When I was yours and you were mine

This is when I lose myself

In this memory, in this time

As I stare at the beauty

At everything I see

I realize that somethings remain

And one of them is this bridge

These stars

And the memories I have of you and I

This is when I let myself break down

This is when I cry

Nyx

My next journey

I reflect upon my mind

I am guided into a path

It plunges into shadow

Then slowly guides me into the light

When I am brought into moments

Of complete despair

I remember the strength I have

I regain a feeling of hope

I embark on my journey

My next journey through life

I will find a way

Because this is what I do

I survive

Nyx

The changing season

As the leaves fall around me

I see the beauty in the changing season

Sometimes there is no need to reason

Everything that people do

I try to remember that when I feel pain

I have to look inside myself again

Find the inner beauty of who I am

As I find the ground

I need to walk on again

Nyx
