My room…

My room, my zone;
My kingdom, my throne.
I smile, I cry, I gloat, I moan.
Thank you, for those caring arms you always loan.

The familiar scents of different candles that works atone…
The loving embrace of the pillows that are my own…
The lively zest in the shelf that the books adorn…
The cuddly bear on the chair that lifts my frown…
The big closet that looks as if it was visited by a cyclone…
The vibrant walls with photos that remind me I’m never alone…
The whispers of wind through the windows that teaches me love’s tone…

Living in you, I’ve grown –
Learning the intriguing unknown,
And forgetting the unwanted known.
Thank you, I hope how much I love you, I’ve shown.


For some reason, I have this overflowing love and appreciation for my room today. Thus this piece dedicated for the awesome room that it is :).

    Awesome..Now you want me to go and clean up mine.. 🙂 which is never a good thing.. 😛

    not that mine is clean or whatsoever, Comfy…but there’s a comfort even in that somewhat untidy familiarity 🙂

    Ohhh….reading this reminds me of my room 😦

    Our room is our most priced possession na! There was never a time when it wasn’t cluttered with clothes and with books strewn away everywhere, but the moment there was some foreign object detected my tantrums were inevitable! 😛

    it sure it, varsh…i sometimes even get too possessive about my room 😀
