The disturbing scenes that replay

make a serene peace so hard to find.

A bright light flickers on...
and then quickly...off.

The disturbing scenes that replay
in a troubled mind,
make a serene peace so hard to find.

A bright light flickers on...
and then quickly...off.
Raging emotions run incredibly wild,
until numbness completely
freezes a tired mind.

An intricate spellbinding mind,
carries such beauty,
but sometimes,
I so despise
the peace that 
you make so hard to find.

A searching hand reaches out into a lonely black darkness
feeling so blind in a world
where everyone is on auto pilot
and I ...am standing still.

Oh lovely mind,
we keep doing this repetitive dance
So dramatically slow in tune with mellow music,
but then you increase your tempo
as I fall to the dense cold floor,
leaving me ...defeated.

My aching heart stands frozen still
For I am waiting to breathe life,
where peace is no longer hard to find. 

Incredible mind,
you bring such enchanting beauty
but within a suffering soul,
you birth a wavering perplexity.

In a cloudy fog of uncertainty
as troublesome scenes of life are put on replay,
I can only patiently dance with a careful composure
in this brutal storm...

And trust,
those organized steps will
lead me to that 
peace
that has been so hard to find.
