There's a place of which I often dream
A place where folks say what they mean
Where hate and jealousy are never seen
A place where love never turns green

A place where tortises mingle with hares
A place where we're always blissful, yet always aware
We're naked as newborn babes and noby cares
This world of mine is just a place where.....

And in my lovers eyes dwell jewels divine
In this place I am not the swine
Its a place where I can go back in time
Undo the damage wrought on me and mine

Butterfly kisses he bestows on my cheeks
I close my eyes, there's no need to speak
Perfection is here...no cracks, no leaks
It's a place to run from an existence so bleak

Its a place where exotic birds will flock
A place that eats away the shock
With the freedom of a drifting boat undocked
It's a secret place that I unlocked

It's a place that's home to unicorns
And caribou with velvet horns
I have nothing left to mourn
It's a place where I'm happy I was born

It's a place where I am welcome and loved
A place where I am never shoved
Where I'm not a left hand in a right glove
A place where I'm peaceful, and free as a dove

A place thats kissed in golden light
A place where noone ever fights
A place where I am always right
A place where everythings beautiful, day or night

And then I come down

And with my help too you are back up again!!: Your place of longing sounds lovely, I'd like to go there too!!:

Thanks for trying to cheer me up...however the poem is and isn't meant from my point of view......
what I mean is that I often do dream of a place like this but it will never happen in this world...the only way to get such euphoria is drugs.....
And thats the point I was making.....about drugs, and how people use them to run from their troubles, that no matter how great the high, there is always a low, and the higher the high, the lower the low. Now that I think about it.....this is an apt description for anything in life, love, a roller coaster, a new puppy....anything
