safe in a dream
in solitude
I touch
a whisper escapes
image seen
and held close
treasured much

a private thought
warm in feeling
it leads
a candle lit
scent inhaled
rendering thoughts
desired needs

there I dwell
just me
no one to know
of such
a moment breathed
a phrase heard
in solitude
I touch

Just a guy who loves to write; poetry, lyrics, short stories and random thoughts… it is my passion. Photography is my second passion as I love to capture the world around me… to make time stop and to savor a subject forever.
