Okay since this is in the love category and the title is sanctuary it is about feeling safe within a lover. I do like the curiosity factor this title holds though, because it can be interpreted in a lit of ways like the poem itself, it's short but holds a ton of imagery and metaphor that plays well together.
The emotions in the first line alone are mixed but they are all good things. The lamp gives you comfort in the darkest of nights, the goosebumps are the chills you get every time they are with you, and the rosery is protection from any harm. That ending is outstanding as well, prayer is a voice and so is poetry, ivory I'm not sure about but it could mean rare? Or this person is one of a kind or beautiful. Anyways, I always love short poems that have a great meaning, and the love poem is a great way to express your deepest and happiest feelings overall. Love it! 5/5
Sighs.... this is beautiful Mel... just beautiful.
