Excuses are Born

With his back against a wall of steel
caught in a silken, sticky web
the cloak of guilt fits him well
mind racing, eyes darting
excuses are born!
He finds a voice
and stammers--
"It wasn’t 
me"!

    We all seem in the greatest denial at the very end, when there's no where else to run. I'd like to know the extent of his guiltiness! Very apt title... I enjoy your work Annalise.

    Annalise a very good Nonetheless Poem. I loved that he was caught in a silken sticky web like a spider's prey, also the cloak of guilt. Very descriptive. You convey your message very well. Warm Smiles, Connie.
