    My "Sanctuary"

    It's where I dream

    the place where I write,

    a bare light bulb handing from the ceiling.

    Wooden floor, covered in dust,

    some crumbled papers, left forgotten.

    I manage to deal with it.

     

    If I didn't have this place

    I think i'd slowly go insane, but I won't.

    It must remain here, hidden.

     

    My mind can't stand it.

    My heart tries to avoid it.

    My pen...absolutely needs it.

    I hate the noise, why would I need it?

    I don't think anyone would want to be in this place.

     

    Then the hour comes,

    the clock strikes midnight, up to my

    sanctuary”

    I go.

     

    The floorboards are creaking again.” I say to myself.

    After a couple hours, I come down,

    my papers all written on.

    This is simply real poetry with no strings attached. "My pen...absolutely needs it" — oh, can this poet relate to this line! Bravo! —smiles))

    This is so good! A sojourn in your "sanctuary" and you emerge with your "papers all written on." Great!

    Thank you very much

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
