That Other Place

The world
Round and Round
And, I
I stand still
I like stillness
Need it...
I savor the feeling of silence inside me
I close my eyes
My mind finally stops all the internal clatter
That chatter
That won't let me have peace
I stand outside
On warm grass
In bare feet
Tilt my face upwards
Extend my arms
As if ready to fly
And, let the warmth of the sunlight
Transport me
It takes me somewhere safe
I like being surrounded by pure white light
There is no noise here
Only the sound of wind chimes
Is where I feel
I need to be
This place
That is no where
I float in my mind
Magic star dust
It's how I long to be
At peace
This place of sparkling diamond dust
Raining down with the rays of the sun
No longer need
Or want
My dreams and desires
Have burned themselves out
I no longer burn
Like the heart inside charcoal
I am
I have turned
Everything is golden silver ash
I have extinguished
Light as the air around me
I'm ready to float
