Hiding from life's storms

Zipped away from the world's harsh realities is where I choose to be
Cushioned by naivety, day dreams, hope, love and the ethereal  
Basking in music, art, nature and, of course, luxurious poetry

It's kinder here; I'm protected, cradled gently inside my mind
In the silken, gossamer chamber I allow my heart to frequent
It's somewhere that only kindred, like-minded others can find 

A cocoon of safety where my dreams lie in a crystallised form
Too delicate for the spinning air of harsh words or harmful actions
Hidden away from life's whirlwinds, the eye of its tempestuous storm 

I reside here often, biding my time, drinking the nectar of imagination
Letting images dance, sensations swirl and melodies serenade my soul
Unlearning; opening, purifying my mind; beginning now my adaptation 

Perceiving through childlike filters; teaching myself to, once again, see 
Getting stronger each day; a new self worth, acceptance and understanding
Knowing one day soon I'll emerge, transformed, radiant and unencumbered
Spreading my strong, diaphanous, brightly hued wings so I can, at last, fly free!

Dream clouds

lost without a sail
drifting on dream clouds of you
- my compass is love

endless tracks sprawled out
...before and behind me now
- one destination
