"Autism & Memoirs of an Old Maid"…C'hele's Story

The Deep Refuge

Filed under: Poetry — C'hele @ 10:36
No one can reach me here

In this deep, dark, space of refuge.



It is quiet.



So very serene.



The freedom.



The exquisite peace.



I cant believe how contented I am to be lulled within this world-

And not feel any guilt for it.



Like an ocean that is motioned on by the breath of the firmament above it,

It gently rocks and softens the hardened armour that shrouds my fragile essence.



The distant purr of sacred, cosmic music lingers angelically in the background.

With my eyes still closed, I allow myself to go deeper-

Delaying exposure to the frigid, steel-like unkindness to the outside world.



I require more time to fully absorb this delightful sanctuary.



A coma has many reflections

And right now,

My soul wouldn’t dream of being anywhere else, but blissfully in this one.






  1. Hi there —

    You and Caela have been on my mind a lot lately. I hope this poem reflects your relief at having your own precious space again.

    What happened with Caela’s school situation?

  2. No one can reach but yet you still yearn to be reached.
    The armor that surrounds your essence, is it keeping the world out or you in?
    I am jealous of your contemplative essence, I am blessed by your sharing.
    Hugs back at you.

  3. In all honesty David, this poem reflects many things that had been crossing my mind…all at once!

    – Glorious sleep. My personal space. What being in meditation feels like. What it feels when one is being rebirthed. What it might feel light after you die. What being in a coma might feel like. Bizzare, but I’m being honest.

  4. This poem reached out and grabbed me..Odd for a poem about peace to do so, but it did and at a time I needed to read just that.
