seek peace in silence

halls and shelves of books
filled with the philosophies and ideas
of men long since dead

i can't find my peace
in words,
only convey my agony
and my escape from it

(lucidity of the mind
is experienced as
a blinking light)

seek peace in silence -
i seek my peace in silence
and bring it forth in words;
simple words destroy the noise
withholding wisdom
