Control Issues

Peace is Internal and External

 and can be thrust upon you

unless you have control issues

  and I do

sentimentality aside

it takes something special to make me relinquish

some urge, some desire

internal and external

enough to leave me trembling between the sheets

I give a little

and then a little more

and then if you're lucky

Let go

Very lucky

Although when I do

there's no going back

thre's the urge, the desire

internal, I give a little

external, coaxing softlyy

until eventually I'm a gibbering wreck

trembling between the sheets

but not this time

no eventually about it

mere moments

and then, external

there is my peace
