    In a world all my own
    My refuge
    My happy home

    Personal
    No guilt
    No shame
    In a dome

    Of perfect
    Display

    In a World, All My Own

    Unspoken
    Softle
    Subtle
    Young

    Young

    Clock keeps ticking

    I finally awake

    To the sounds of symphonies
    Not yet sung

    Not yet begun

    Not yet strung

    A mysterious
    Unknown

    A pattern is only heart and soul

    A future

    Looking bright

    Not hazy

    A time where we were one
    Not split crazy

    A time where we were dumb
    innocently

    A time I will never foget
    I collect in my memory

    Without time
    In an area of speed rhyme

    In an area

    unaware

    In a World, All My Own

    Open my arms

    To feel the warmth of you

    No insults

    Beautifully true

    My thoughts

    I keep to myself

    So emotionally driven

    To think outside myself

    Poetry lines

    Old sayings are wise

    So listen up

    And look surprised

    Wrap me up

    Hold me close

    Closer

    And closer

    Hold me closer

    Feel your love

    Gentle and tender

    It's just history

    It's just with me

    It's just mine

    It's just mine

    Like a river it flows

    Welling up inside

    Pushing away the barriers keeping it from

    Spilling out from inside me

    Can't help it

    It goes all directions

    I have to admit

    Can't I just quit?

    Can't I just get?

    Can't I just recieve?

    Is there a place and time for we?

    Or is it all just a guise?

    Simply meant it

    Please don't get it twisted

    So free

    I spread my arms

    So sweet

    Melts away the hurt and misery

    Lulling my worries away

    It's how I functionn

    It's a notion

    So slowly you reach me at my peak

    And I tip-toe to the sink

    Drenching my face with the oxygen of water

    The calmness of the autumn

    Newly
    I

    I

    I

    Am

    In

    A


    World

    All

    Own

    This felt like your own personal home. Your writing is very fluid and emotive poetess.

    yes learning how to navigate life's journey

    i loved this part

    I finally awake

    To the sounds of symphonies
    Not yet sung

    Not yet begun

    Not yet strung

    i loved this part because it has the rays of hope

    and sometimes hope is what really keeps you going

    peace poet

    and good luck on your journey
