My Internal Peace


8;44am

I've decided that its okay for things to be this way,

My Internal Peace,

My Internal Peace,

I would trade just so you can remain with me

To risk my comforts

I would do it for your love

To risk my sanity

Just for your closure

All just so you can remain with me

My internal peace

I would trade just so you can remain with me

So i can see you smile in the morning,

My laughter I would limit

Just so I can hear yours,

I would remain in hunger

Just so you can be full

I would wake

so you can rest

All just so you can remain with me

As from what I've seen so far

its impossible to have it all

And i know I should believe a little more,

But I couldn't ignore the fact of the matter

That I would always be without

One or the other

That I would always be a sacrifice

That I would always be disconnected

From all that one could be

That I would remain ever so slightly displaced,

Ever so slightly on the outside

I would always be a little different

and to be that is okay

As long as you are still here,

My internal peace

I would trade just so you can remain with me

Because I couldn't be without you,

I couldn't imagine it to be without you

And so if I must have it this way, then this way it shall be

Every now and then

I will long for, for dear peace,

But it is no where to be seen ....
