Sanctum

Living Room Pictures Of Blanket Forts

We took the sofa covers

we put it together, reciting the anthem

it was a complete masterpiece

it was our sanctum.

………

It is forbidden to enter in

before the timepiece strikes 12 o’clock,

to keep thieves and ghosts away

Use something to block.

………

Finally, it’s time,

time to enter the holiest place

of all places

and hide away in the base.

………

It will keep you safe

from any type of calamity

It will protect you

from the reality.

………

Now beware of the winds,

coming from the west, hard,

Hold on to the walls tightly

before it lowers its guard.

(This sums up my childhood! I used to build this ‘sanctum’ with my big brother when we used to be little, little kids. Hope you liked this!)

Hi! I am a 13-year-old currently studying in the Netherlands. For 5 years, I was studying in London and moved to India for some time in July 2019. First of all, I love playing the western flute and have been playing for quite a few years now. Playing and also, listening to music is definitely my passion. Some sports I enjoy playing are badminton, netball, swimming, football, cricket (these are the top 5!). Ok, so let’s talk about poetry. I wrote my first poem in a primary school in England and this inspired me to start writing poems on WordPress. Some of my recent poems are about global issues such as climate change, depression, bullying etc. Writing poetry is another passion of mine…so, check out my poems on WordPress. I don’t know what else I could say here so, hope you love my poems…..happy reading!!
