Take Me Away

Take Me Away

A Poem by A.Lee

Take me away to a secret place
Let my hair blow in the breeze

As you whisk me to a safe abode

Where my fragile heart can survive


Take me away to a place unknown

Where everything’s all right

Where there is no pain, or hate, or trial

Where love only comes, never leaves


Take me away to a fruitful place

Where wounded hearts can mend

Let me grow into something beautiful

A change I could never make here


Because here there’s too much hate

There’s too much hurt and pain and strife

And every time I finally start to mend

I find I’m left in pieces again…


So take me away to a secret place

Where I can be safe from harm

A place where I can thrive and be

This place that isn’t real

Author's Note

Nothing special. First poem I've written in a while that didn't want to be rhymed though.

Ah, a nice write that tells of the ideal utopia we all want to be in! This is an awesomely mystic and coloful write. Whether it rhymes or remains the same it should be fine. Do what you want and keep it up!

There is a place....it is in your writing. I find a special place in yours, not always a place of happiness and joy, but certainly one filled with real emotion and life in its rawest form. Nice write girl...you know I like it.

That was beautiful! I liked it a lot. :) It had a tranquil, simplistic atmosphere to it, paired up with evocative, enchanting imagery. The third stanza was my absolute favourite! Very, very nice write!

We all need a place where we can relax and feel safe. I like the poem. I wander to the woods and try to think. A outstanding poem.

I understand the want and need you're writing about. I sure wish I could find that place. You did a great job on this write. It all works perfectly, I think.

There is such an emotional appeal desiring that safe place.. that place of abundance... the one we all wish for deep down. You express this so beautifully!

vivid and imaginative work, it's just wonderful. sweet

We would all love a chance to visit utopia and heal from the real world. I guess the closest that you can get is in the arms of someone who really cares about you. I enjoyed reading this poem and I really liked the last line. I'm into apprapoe endings!

I am lots of things, but here you'd identify most with the writer and avid reader. I have three beautiful children. The oldest boy, Seth, passed last year after fighting a long battle with cancer. .. more..
