Hiding inside the written page,
  ‘reality’ slipped away

Buried inside a meaning deep,
  its wolves were kept at bay

With feelings ablaze, all answers are torched,
  a bonfire at the gate

New questions enshrined, false promises burned,
  with ash to mark the way


(Villanova Pennsylvania: June, 2014)
