Unlatch the hinges

Rehashing one of my favourite poems I’ve written to date. It’s about nine months old now. Ahh, this one always makes me feel calm and centred… πŸ™‚

Welcome to your very own sacred imaginarium…

Here is a place
where your heart can rest,

this chest is full of treasures,
just out of sight but not out of reach,

where I promise, you can surrender your restless mind
at least for the night,

this place is non-physical,
this place is always available, and free of cost,

an internal shelter
with the richest treasure you’ll ever discover,

and the beauty of it is that it’s all yours,

yours to keep,
yours forever,
to seek, to enter,

whenever,

whenever you need some time to stop for a moment,
just to breathe,
to reflect and recollect,

the key is right there before you,

in this chest you’ll find gems richer than the earth itself,
diamonds and charms more valuable than anything you can purchase,

in this inner sanctuary
buried deep are
the unshelled memories
that we all carry around, burrowed inside,
along with fragments of beautiful souls we’ve crossed paths with over time,

here, you’ll find unpolished jars,
carrying untouched glances,
unspoken words,
and words you wish you could suck back,
and those moments that felt like the whole world momentarily stopped,

coloured with ecstasy-filled breaths,
riddled with the memories of heart-wrenching pain,

passionate conversations
and sweaty nights in the wintertime,

nestled within this chest of sensations and ideas
are those golden grins,
those unique opinions,
all the many ways of living,
and different eyes upon the world,

that you get to keep and listen to,

those deep-bellied laughs,

those wild nights we always seem to pack a week’s worth of adventures into,

those late night skinny-dips,
just us and the moon.

How about those unclenched dreams,
it’s never too late to go catch ’em,
to start with just one,
right here, in this space,
you never know what may unfurl
when you harmonise your day-to-day with
the beat of your heart and the vision of your mind’s-eye,

may as well cease the best view,
it’s free, but it takes time,
so allow this chest to stay open,

unlatch the hinges,
throw away the key,
and revel in all of your inner treasures
