The Secret Life of Me

The Secret Life of Me

A Poem by Melinda McQueen

There’s a place I go--

A place all my own.

Taking nothing but my heart,

I can see in the dark.

 

Riding a stallion of white,

I remove myself from life’s plight.

It’s there I’m free…

The secret life of me.

 

There’s a place I go--

A place where all I touch is gold.

Where I can hold

All my heart bestows.

 

In this place I can walk the steepest hill

And do all the things my heart wills.

I’m all I desire to be…

In the secret life of me

 

There’s a place I go--

A place where all I know

Is answered prayers

Coming to fruition on wings of care.

 

In this place I can soar high,

Where I can take flight.

This place is my heart filled with dreams…

The secret life of me.

I love the way you've painted us a picture of setting & feelings that's original & heartfelt. I think lots of people escape to a void, where they can turn off the strong feelings that plague. That's why it's unusual to me, & fresh-sounding, that your secret place is one where all things are possible & the sun shines 24/7. It's hard to be so hopeful when you feel like escaping from the harshness of life. You've done a great job of showing us what hope looks & feels like.

Thank you for reading and leaving your review. Much appreciated.
I liked this poem very much. Reminded me a bit of the song 'Pocketful of Sunshine' by Natasha Bedingfield. I can really relate.

Gentle and kind words in the poetry.
"There’s a place I go--
A place where all I know
Is answered prayers
Coming to fruition on wings of care."
The words were spoken softly and carry heavy meaning. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

You are welcome dear Poet.
This is lovely and very well written. Many of us need to go inside ourselves to that special place, and especially so for the creative, for that's where we find the unformed art.

Thank you for reading and your review.
Melinda this is very moving and filled with spirit. The repeated phrase "Theres a place I go" is ethereal and beautifully employed here. I liked where this took me and how it recalled to me a song called 'Ride on" which is huge in Ireland. Very touching.
Thanks for sharing this...
