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.

So beautiful, an incredible journey you take the reader on! Very powerful use of repetition, "The secret life of me." You allow the audience to relate and at the same time wish they were you and able to enjoy this secret place as you do. Sounds like a little heaven on earth. Thank you for sharing this! ...almost makes me think of the movie "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," stunning!

This is an awesome write filled with perfect imagery.
"Riding a stallion of white,
I remove myself from life’s plight.
It’s there I’m free…
The secret life of me."

I love that second stanza because it reveals that secret place you go for peace... everyone needs thats kind of place or setting to break away enjoy something for yourself. Awesome write :)
