Defenses

communicated purpose sighs, fated signs pressed in melted wax. vandalized solution soon dies, methodical confessions tax. fated signs pressed in melted wax, defending crumbled walls of need. methodical confessions tax, finding silence willing to bleed. defending crumbled walls of need, ambition grows an honest lie. finding silence willing to bleed, gather the memories passed by. ambition grows an honest lie, tomorrow's secret closely hold. gather the memories passed by, love only for a moment told. tomorrow's secret closely hold, drinking December's thawing ice. love only for a moment told, consumed by numbers on the dice. drinking December's thawing ice, choking on midnight's changing year. consumed by numbers on the dice, addictions negotiate fear.

    I thank each person for your lovely welcome and for esteeming my poem as worthy of viewing and leaving me something of each of yourselves. It will take me awhile to learn my way here and to read and respond to your poems as well.Colin,I did enjoy your poems very much and I had time to view another wonderful poet's art,but my time is very limited. I will get to reading all the rest of you as soon as I can. Again thank you! aloha, Koko
