Alone and in Peace

Give me a corner, out of the light
Safe in the darkness, shadows and night.
All things fade, all fall away
Accepted by no one, alone in my bay.

A haven where no one can find me at all
Away from the voices, the faces, them all.
A place of solace, consoling peace,
Where no one can join me and no one can leave.

Love is a lie, a fairy tale friendship
All will leave me; alone in the end.
Trust broken and hope crushed by the world
Leaving me drained and afraid of their hold.

So pray as I might, in the end I retreat
Go alone to my place of contented sleep.
Beyond day and night and the reaches of time,
I sleep in the dark, where the stars always shine.
