    Poem #135 I Need Peace

    . . . When I was a youngster I cared a whole lot About popularity And what people thought. Now that I'm older, I really don't care, I just want the quiet And lots of fresh air. I don't want to argue And I don't like to fight. I just want to make it Through one more long peaceful...

    I love my TV. I love going to the movies.

    I love playing my music and singing along loud and proud. I love laughing like a lunatic. But I am most me when it's just quiet. Just me and my thoughts and feeling the world around me. That's where I'm anchored, safe and content.

    The Sound Of Silence.

    This would be the first thing I'll be posting on here, and as I think it'd be necessary to make my first post something self-defining, I feel the need to declare my love of peace and quiet. After a long day's work, I go home, do some chores and then once I feel I deserve it I...

    Solitude

    There is no such thing as peace and quiet. Everywhere you go theres noise. Even when you close everything off in the house and try to get some rest you hear the neighbors rustling about, the cars traveling on the roads, wind blowing, sirens on police cars,the clock ticking in the...

    I love being at this mood.

    .. I am not that busy person.. I love listening to music.. I am that type of girl who sit in front of the sea or stare at a butterfly... it's just fit me!

    Stillshot Of Serenity

    Ever have one of those moments where the world seems to stop for a split second and you haven't got a worry in the world? Although I don't go frequently, I was on a golf outing yesterday. At one point I had to walk up some steps to a plateau where I would tee off. I reached the...

    Music?

    I need silence, most of the time.... the quiet forests or at the very least, MY choice of music in my headphones so I can block out the noise not of my choice. Silence is the best though.... mock silence and the peace of solitude. I get it so rarely anymore. Though it is...

    Peace and Quiet

     I like being able to sit and just let the stress try to melt away or atleast just be shrugged off long enough to relax the mind and muscles. I can find this in quiet rooms, soft music, watching the ocean or the clouds or the soft sleepy eyes of my new son. When I can find...

    Fighting My Way Out Of Myself

    Smiles to hide the tears I cry. I put you at ease while I fidget in my skin. Broken coffee pots and anger I cannot explain reflects my shattered but functioning heart and the way I feel about the pain. Trapped in the only corner I would not fight my way out of…afraid of the...

    Peace

    Peace and quiet to me is sitting in my back yard feeling the warm golden sun on my face and the balmy breeze whispering through the trees.  Tranquility sets in and gently soothes my soul.  My heart beats gently my body relaxes as all the worries of the day fade away...

    I like it but if it's just blankly ignoring someone I think it's mean and I want to push them off their chair. And when someone disrupts me when I'm wandering around I want to shoot them in the leg and lie in the grass while they run off I hate how often people do that and then...

    Weird

     I am not a morning person, but When I get a good nights rest and wake up real early before everyone else and can just sit and eat a bowl of cereal, in peace and quiet. It is so so nice.
