There is a place inside,
Maybe deep in my heart,
Where I sometimes hide,
When I fall apart.

Many secrets here I keep,
All my feelings, too,
The dreams when I sleep,
And my wishes to come true.

It is where I can go,
When life is just to much,
I let my emotions flow,
And I am out of touch.

I am happy in that place,
Even when my heart is sad,
All the troubles that I face,
Suddenly don't seem so bad.

In this place I can fly,
Way up to the stars,
The moon passes me by,
And I could soar so far.

It is a world of fantasy,
Maybe deep in my mind,
It can take away my misery,
There's no better place to find.

    Beautiful write. We all have that happy place we go to, we introspect deep within. Your happy place is described really well. No hate, no sorrow, no pain, and all life's nonsense out of the way. A persons mind is the one thing that is truly his, and as long as he has it, he is free.

    I agree, Rohan. The mind holds endless possibilities of freedom, and all we need do is use our imaginations.... Thank you so much for the wonderful comments. I really do appreciate it!

    Hi Kelly, another Interesting and well written write from you my friend. We all have that place where we go when things just get too much. I call mine the land of Love and dreams, my place where I'm not afraid to be with other people. I Love the flow and rhyme of this piece. I just Love the whole Idea of the Inner sactum. You speak of your hidden sanctum well. Long may you have It to protect you from this world. Fantasy lives. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Thank you very much, Mike. My inner sanctum is like a sanctuary to me. It's a safe place where I can go and just be myself, without worrying about being judged. I'm also very shy and my sanctum allows me to just break free, and do the things that I could never do in real life. I'm so glad that you understand what I was trying to say in this poem!

    Kelly What a clever and creative write. Everyone needs a place to escape when they can't deal with day to day issues anymore. Dreaming is a great way to lose yourself for a while and feel happy. Nice job Thanks for the wonderful comment on my You Flipped My World poem. Hugs

    Incredible you were right. The flow is rhythmic, Your words launch my creative mind into flight where dreams always come true. You have a special gift. We have a lot in common so peaceful is the mind TY

    wow! Kelly, you are right i love this. I don't know this place yet.. I have no peace in me.. No I am not dark..but, I can't seem to find the place where i can be free from it all. I like this place where all your fantasies and feelings roam away from all bad situations... excellent write...Linda

    I love your inner sanctum, it is an indulgence where the soul can roam free, as Saint Theresa of Avila stated, the soul has many room and unless we learn to flit and fly through each one, we shall never be truly free, you are an inspiration to me dearest one, sending you a treasured hug, and warm friendship thoughts xxx
