I want to stop time and catch my breath. Just a little moment to step back from the sadness,
A chance to step away from the pain.
I want to be free again.
Open to do as I please in my own little world that doesn’t move; a quiet place to relax and rest.
I want to stop time and take it all in.
The stars, the roses, even the little ants on the hill.
This fast-paced world has lost its thrill, but I want more than a world that’s just simple and slow.
I want a world that does not go.
Oh, how I long to be still.
I want to stop and reconnect.
To halt everything, and capture all the scattered pieces— the shards that cannot run.
I want to stop time and be free.
In this motionless space where I can be me.
I want to stop and make it all mine.
I want it all to stay, I want to stop time.
Free me from my chains.
Let me go, and fly away.
A meager soul, even smaller heart.
The remains of being torn apart.
Challenge me, force me to rise beyond.
I watch the time, it’s almost gone.
At the breaking point, singing the bleakest song.
For naught, and nil.
Slowing down with waning will.
Forsaking wisdoms, embracing passion and the irrational.
Settling into the discomfort of being unknown.
Out of my own mind and body it feels I am thrown.
The wicked thoughts are hunting me.
Lusting after the sanctity of the little tranquility I hold.
Robbing me blind, and beating me deaf.
I see no hope, I hear no whispers of comfort.
There is no chance for succor, the darkness remains bold.
Wilting like a flower in its final days.
Defeat sets in, and on the shoulders it stays.
Burning sun, it’s sting etched deep into the skin.
Only vaguely compares to the burning within.
Take me down now, I need my rest.
Free me from my chains, my one request.
