Past Tension


Be vigilant

as Presents pass

as you age

and time goes fast

) uncaging (

↓ Hands ↑

of Death

>that grasp<

Watch carefully

for portents…


Will come too soon

remember when’s

In empty rooms

Galloping toward your

own doom

a taunting mean

of morbid


the warmth

Of bloodlines own–

–Concerns and care

of family known–

–the hearth ♥ that makes

A house

 a home

Wrought over Time—

–is torment.
