They can see
Without really seeing
They can exist
Without really being
What would they do
If confronted by you?
Something only time could measure
No gold nor jewels in this treasure

And when Iím alone
Inside my mind,
Nothing transpires, nothing hurts

Inside my mind

A place to go
Without ever leaving
A faith somehow
Without even believing
My body wrecked and shattered
But none of this matters
Thereís a garden where I go
In which the seeds of life grow

And when Iím alone
Inside my mind,
Nothing transpires, nothing hurts

Inside my mind

This is beautiful.  It's so amazing how we feel that our pain and hurt lies within us,... yet if we allow ourselves to go deeper inside our minds we find the peace that we've been searching for all along...I'm glad you've found it.

 Fleeting World
"Thus shall ye think of all this fleeting world:
A star at dawn, a bubble in a stream;
A flash of lightning in a summer cloud,
A flickering lamp, a phantom, and a dream."
-from the Diamond Sutra, translated by : A. F. Price -- found in Teachings of The Buddha, edited by Jack Kornfield

oh how i love -- how your mind works...
and being inside your mind...(say it with me)
(smile)...entwined
stalking you always,
your jm



 and you can say baby...
baby can I hold you tonight
maybe if told you the right words...
at the right time,
you'd be mine...
baby can I hold you tonight...

Where the seeds of life grow

I think thats my favourite line from your poem..our mind's where ideas originate..where the impossible becomes possible..where we can do and be who we want

Thanks for taking me on this journey insdie your mind
