It's been a very long time carrying this inside
Long years of comfort tinged with confusion is settled
The absolute security of having a full shine is more direct today
Inside ... there is a haven where you dwell

My safe place

Here where we never guess
Where there is no judgement
No one enters and chaos is never allowed
Not where the spirit of this lover and the soul of her heart reigns
Where we always begin to shine and never pale
In here... in this white hot core ...

This haven

We have our dreams... our way

Infinity seems real
There are no doubts nor repenting and regrets
Here we have taller years
We make better use of time
Our thoughts have credence
Being accountable to one another is ...
Most important
Ethics is more than a word
Here we admit to immortality
We live and hold to every morsel that's positive

Time is tasted

Here values are treasured
Our sorrows are outlived
Tender caresses of faith ... shine
In this haven...our safe place.

Your poetry soars into the tender area of the heart and serves as a reminder that the heart still beats strong…excellent writing.

Reviewed by Kate Burnside 5/22/2006
This poem "grows" a person from the inside out, like wot love does. Loved the line: "Here we have taller years"... as someone who is height-challenged, this means a lot! :)) Jus kiddin, but that clever expression will stick with me: it says it all in temporal and spatial terms. Wonderful work. TY Kate xx

You awaken feeling when we readers read you poetry that maybe we haven't thought of in a long time, and this is just one more to the long list of poetical achievements. That soft place. It's special, isn't it?
Reviewed by Felix Perry 5/22/2006
Susan whenever I review a poem I try to always find the best aspects of it. This is one that is hard because the quality, images stirred and feelings awakened by your opening up your soul are just too...
stunning, Thank you for such a perfect day starter.

Reviewed by F William Broome 5/22/2006
Your talented mind has constructed, in verse, the houghts (convictions?) of one older than you, Susan. There are parts of it that sipg to me, others comfort me, and still a portion confirming my realization of things immortal. How insigful of your pen and burhs to write the volume and paint the canvas.
