I have a heaven
Tucked safely away
From unwanted eyes
And unwanted days.

Its beauty lies
In the abstract
Of abandoned growth
And my guardian trees.

In this little place,
Lies the secret to me
In the thistle's arms,
This is where I find peace.

To most other eyes,
It is a desolate place.
But to me, to my heart?
Sweet joy at its best.

My dad often says that in a certain room, everyone has their preferred room, the place where they belong. I can relate- I once went around a table 3 times before deciding where to sit. Very special places are good things.

About talking; why don't people ever think before they talk? It would save so much trouble; it would also save me from wanting to slap about half of the world's population.

We all have special places... I could imagine it. *High Five*!
