Her Writing Haven


She sits and she thinks

In a wardrobe that’s all hers

It’s the only quiet place in the house

Where nothing else stirs


She frequents this secretive place

As often as she can

Tucked away in the corner of a house

Where it’s too cramped to stand


As time ticks away

She often loses track of the hours

Falling under the spell of magical words

Which seem always to overpower


This tiny little space

Has been sort of a blessed haven

Especially in dismal times

When her heart has been quite heavy-laden


As confined and as insufficient

As this writing area really has been

It has allowed her to share things with others

Which were deeply held within


So as difficult and challenging

As her restrictive closet has remained

She dares not say an ill word about it

And would never think to complain


Her profound love for writing

Is what she cares most about

And that’s the complete honest truth

Without even the slightest bit of doubt
