Everyone has got their little sanctuaries, some places to feel safe in, and free to be who we are, where there is no need to hide or act. So now if you wish, then follow me along, to one of my own.

Broken door plasterd in colorful paper

once past the threeshold

opens another world

shutting out reality


Between deep blue walls

candle light reflects

enclosed by incense mist

mingling scents with wood and straw

fading touch of powder and perfume

in the middle of a dozen faces

drawn in black and white


This place the city's noise can't reach

granting shelter from the storm outside

sun of brighter days won't shine

leaving me in dark

with silent emptiness

I've grown to love so much


This is my refuge, my sanctuary

where I want to wither away
