The Place You Cannot Go…

Night_Dwellers_by_emptyidentityentity deviantart

The place you cannot go….

It is buried deep within….

Safely hidden from all external forces….

It is where my heart resides locked up tight….

΅〜 〜΅ 

I think of it often….

When hurtful words, actions, and circumstance permeate me….

Irregardless of their intent….they hurt….more than I can endure….

Inducing remembrance of why I wear my façade….

΅〜 〜΅ 

As my soul sinks deeper within its faux protection…

There can be no hurt, no pain, no disenchantment….

Impenetrable, as only I hold the key….

΅〜 〜΅

If I let you in, where you would wish to be….

The internal torment becomes unbearable with any action contrary to that which you wish to project….

Speak to me of love….whisper words of comfort…seek my trust….

All for not….for I will not let you in…

To potentially risk that which I have struggled…fought…

conquered with sheer determination….

The inception for this place of protection….

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅

All I am….

The sanctuary of my essence….

Subsumed in the place you cannot go….

~

  1. What a stunning piece of poetry. There’s a word I am trying to think of. One that starts with “ex”. Exemplary – I think that’s it .. no – Exceptional.

    The way you describe this is tremendous. I really have no words to describe it. Brilliant

  2. Beautiful (and I am really not a fan of poetry) 🙂 However I do like yours. I will tuck away ‘subsumed’ to be used at a later date 😉

  5. This gift of words you have Christina allows you to express those feelings so many of us have that we cannot put into form. This is why your work resonates with so many and why you must really at some point have your poetry published. Hope all is well my friend.

  7. Blimey when you write, you do go to the core of some deep places. This comment may (does) seem sadly lacking but the intensity with which you write and what you write has left me – for once – speechless to even begin to know quite how to state how much I love and feel this. #BlownAway

  12. Hi Christina 😀

    So true and so relevant to everyone who feels the same way. Your way of expression is brilliant. Love it !!

    I think what you mean is this:
    At birth you are given a beautiful treasure chest full of wondrous items such as love, kindness, happiness, joy etc. The chest is locked and the key is left inside. At some point in the Path of Life you realise that you have that wondrous treasure chest and that treasure chest is YOU, and you have been holding the key all the time. The chest is battered but strong and still holds those wonderful items which only those with a similar chest can see and are allowed in.

    Big hug. Ralph xox 😀

  13. this singular, safe place you so eloquently write about here, i know all too well.
    it is my default place, my shelter from an inhospitable and cruel world, a place
    to go and mend the wounds and recover, remember and eventually remind myself
    that the world will be as beautiful as i decide to see it, the key is in our hearts. peace.
