Where No One Else Can Be

    Where no one else can be

    A quiet and eternal place
    Exists inside of me
    A place that's only mine

    Always there when I need it
    Never failing to shelter me
    An inner sanctum safe and apart

    If only I could be left alone
    To ponder, puzzle and be
    I crave the time I spend inside

    Where no one else can be

    I wish I could move easily
    From inner world
    To outer.

    It seems easy for others
    Not me

    When I want to be alone
    And other people are around
    What do I do?

    If I say nothing
    They don't get it
    They push
    Push
    Push

    They don't get it
    They don't get me
    I just want to be left alone

    Where no one else can be

    Could it be
    They wait for me
    To speak and let them know

    That I am fine
    This too will pass
    That my heart is leading me.

    A quiet and eternal place
    Still waits inside for me
    A place that is only mine

    Always there when I need it
    Never failing to shelter me
    An inner sanctum safe and apart

    I love that secret place inside
    To ponder, puzzle and be
    I love the time I spend inside

    Where no one else can be.

    I found interesting this poem. It has a spiritual depth and an urge to find one's own self !

    Though I want to suggest some thing! Please bear with me!

    The natural flow of poem is really okay up to these lines:

    "They don't get it
    They don't get me
    I just want to be left alone"


    Then what ever is there have an element of 'added', then again I found linked with these lines:

    "I love that secret place inside
    To ponder, puzzle and be
    I love the time I spend inside

    Where no one else can be."


    What ever in between will be remove then also the poem will be poem and the meaning will be definately flow like a stream!

    Thank you for posting this here!

    I think its a really good poem with deep meaning. There are a few ways to look at it and the road of the person that looks at it will have to find a different beauty at the end. I agree with the few points that some of it doesn't flow as nicely as the other parts, but I understand why there there and that it does help find deeper meaning.
