Chambers Of My Heart

Each one has its place inside me -
Abandoned philosophies
Worlds of my imagination
Treasured memories
Nightmares and spooks
Each breath I take

       The enchanted forest of my childhood
       Lives right next door to the boarded up room
       I’ve erased from memory and mind

       Books with their unfolding, never ending stories
       Reside besides the smells and sounds of the sea
       Waves crashing into soft silken beaches

       The shattered glass of broken dreams and distraught heart
       Is held together by the engine that drives it all
       Day by day, hour by hour till the very last

       Words and pictures flowing through my veins
       Onto walls of pristine white paper
       Filling up the blue blue days of Winter

All hidden behind the outer shell
Of the colours of everyday life
Secured good and tight
Behind lock and key
Each thing has its place
Secrets untold waiting for the light

This is what you’d find
If you cut me open
To see what’s inside

Artist's Description

Poem. Not quite sure why I wrote this, but I wondered what my heart would look like if it had rooms for everything I feel and think….
