Tag Archives: fear as a cape


intensifying in waves,

speaking failure and graves…

lost on stormy

ground lonely,

wind-whipped the future he braves.

fear for loved ones looms

and for himself, one assumes…


of able-ly

seeing into the gloom.

fear like a cape surrounds,

herding one toward safer grounds…

fear of failing

rebels assailing,

risky behavior impounds!
