Cavity Search

I’ll persist, if you continue to insist
for defiance is my middle name
with no other to blame
but a devil with another name


Leap of Faith

I came upon a worrisome boulder
barring passage beyond the second phase,
an unsettling turn of events

Darkness of night hides its secrets from view,
the morning sun won’t divulge those shocking truths
prying eyes were never meant to see

Dusk Yields to Dawn

Once again, caution is man’s best friend
… thinking things through to alternate ends …
Fickle unpredictable circumstance
… definitions defy the casual glance …
Undue speculation builds a faulty tower
… obviously predisposed to fall to the elements …
The heart yearns for change in the quiet of night
… the light of a new day must surely rise …
