There's a Place We Go to Find You

There's a Place We Go to Find You

A Story by MiriamMB

sometimes I want to meet someone I admire and have communication be smooth, and have them not mind my shyness. I want to share stories with people.


There's a place we go to find you

between deep sleep

and shallow breaths,


you see us

we're so shy,

but you are brave

and we offer our gracious hands as

canvases for your paint,

a thank you for your

open arms and warm gaze,

you offer mellifluous words

to cool our hearts sweet,

it was a long hard road to

get to you.

You tell us your true name

we repeat it quietly, under

our breath,

you are a new language,

and when we speak your name,

blue jasmine

spring from

our tongues.

We tell you our three

names, and you let each one

sit in your mouth.

when you speak them, softly,

your breath smells of

ylang ylang.

We spend the night telling each other stories

we tell you the places we stopped to rest our feet,

you tell us which fruit growing

in your city is the sweetest,

we tell you of a place where the rain never stops,

you promise to show us your favorite book shop.

We spend the night

sharing stories between each other

The room we share is a pungent bouquet.

Author's Note

It might be confusing what "We" means. I will leave it be. I've been working on it, changing it, playing with the poem for weeks.

It was confusing for me but that doesn't take away from how great it was written. Word choices were superb! "between deep sleep and shallow breaths" You have talent!
