    Shores of Tranquility

    Your voice still lingers in my mind.
    I try so hard but I cannot put this behind
    of myself, I try to escape in fantasies so bold
    as misery enfolds me in a dark that feels so cold

    Dreams of freedom no longer visit me
    long forgotten those shores of tranquility

    I try to run but thoughts of you always find me
    through this black blindfold I cannot see
    I fall on my knees and beg for mercy
    but nothing I do or say will ever set me free

    Dreams of freedom no longer visit me
    long forgotten those shores of tranquility

    Darkness cuts like a knife into my mind
    Peace and solitude I am unable to find
    Can someone please help me escape this maze
    Help me find away through blinding haze.

    until I find the strength to go on within myself
    through feelings of abandonment and betrayal I delve
    I take a breath and swim away from this misery
    and awaken on the shores of tranquility.

    Dark thoughts of you no longer haunt me
    I got away, ran away form this travesty.
    No more will I linger in misery and despair
    Now I look upon a world, golden and fare.

    I like how you have a refrain, that makes it especially nice, like Poe maybe.

    Thank you, thank you. It's hard to explain exactly but what I write is at the same time both personal and not. It's like, when I write something I zone out and once its done its like a weight has been lifted from me. Really odd but I cant help it lol.

    well i know exactly what you are talking about hun it is always a different persona that writes when my words come out in poetry and afterwards i feel a weight has been lifted off me I don't write much anymore though
