Poem - These Assumptions

The poem “These Assumptions” is about thoughts that support a life before the possible falls.


These Assumptions

These assumptions made for sanity
lest the madness find a place
already present in small part
awaits for reason to depart

scraps snatched to satisfy
crumbs sustaining vacant calm
while the storms may conspire
outside the window of the mind

curtains drawn as consequence
otherwise the world would bend
tumble down as gaps appear
expose the farce that all fear

warped to test belief in God
for lies then resolved
assumptions gathered are no more
now cast aside as madness grows.

Poem - Cloaked by Pictures

The poem “Cloaked by Pictures” was inspired by a meme about walls keeping secrets.


Cloaked by Pictures

The walls keep secrets well
without regard for time’s span
years are the quickest blink
when looking at the passing scene

seeing all while with staring eyes
this sentinel in plain sight
invisible in the full light
of countless days and hooded nights

cloaked by pictures praising love
generations that come and go
the ghosts insisting they’re alive
shadows cast in passing flight

these memories are well kept
held behind painted shrouds
echoes lost with wisdom gained
never shared beyond the same.
