Peace at Last

Sat I down on the dock by the river

And the watched the brown water flow by

Thought to myself “under the surface is peace”

Peace at last

Peace from your cruel tongue

Peace from your cruel laugh

Peace from your cruel silence

Peace from your “jokes”

Peace from my pain

Pain is all around me, physical and emotional

I cannot live like this any longer

I need rest from this hurt

So you (and my disease) drive me to death

Slip into the water never to rise

Will you ever know what you caused?

Would you even care?
