I want peace

I just want peace, and no

withering tension, and words

that sting and leave the faint

acrid smell of exasperation.

 

I want peace to be still with

nothing to prove and no

tugging expectations to be a

certain way and do it this way.

 

Peace is what I need now;

just my own company and the

joy of not having to appease

another being who is always right.
