My Happy Place by Charlize Arriola


Worlds constructed in my mind’s eye

fantastical creations 

of thought.

Words float up 

from a page of hundreds


around my head.

Sometimes I spy

Heroes, villains

Playing tag

across my eyelids.

I look into the life of another

Then become them.

I laugh with fairies, elves, and gnomes,

I battle with swords pulled from stone

I walk with memories

of the



and make-believe.


Charlize lives in Belmont, California with her parents and 2 rabbits. A confessed Kpop addict, she loves to write, dance, and play her violin.
