Wish to reveal innermost details
when caught outside a comfort zone.
A simple pleasure perhaps spiritual
becomes less gregarious when alone.
Each time we try suggested walks close,
we know the circumstance of pain
wandering rogue outside common holes,
while the nature of our being refrain.
Once I felt the world beyond the crest,
insignificant inside this nature of man
Where could a good man feel blessed
Only less provocation survives this omen.
I wound up tight without apparent release
though time does plead a quiet peace.
