Sitting in a place
Of warm solitude
I write in my journal
Hoping no one will intrude

I play some music
Maybe loud rock n’roll
Maybe sounds of nature
To soothe my soul

I set down all my
Thoughts and poses
Things of forget-me-nots
And wild roses

I can look back to see
Where I have been
To see where I am going
I just release my pen

My thoughts run wild
Or down a charted course
Dreams of childhood
Hopes for a horse

The birth of my children
The breakup of marriage
Slow dancing
Rides in a carriage

When I am done
I will lock away this book
Hoping no one finds it
No one takes a look

My private
Thoughts and poses
And roses.

MagnoliaBlue, a wonderful poem. we all need our secrets and private verses.  beautifully written.

"An abyss that lasted creation A circus complete with all fools
Foundations that lasted the ages Then ripped apart at their roots"

wonderfully written    
writing down life as it happens, reading it as it was, thinking in ink on what will be...
everyone should have their private escape!
i truly love this
