New Poetry Wednesday: Walls

Wallsnightmarescover

Curl up inside
These pieces of paper
Pray they will protect
Against the raging storm
Until it is safe
Within four walls
Long absent or tainted
Curl up inside
These pieces of paper
My hasty prayers
Decorating their water stains
Urge them to hold me
Safe and sound until
I once more have four
Walls to surround
All my own untainted
Solid and reassuring
Curl up inside
These pieces of paper
Pray they will protect
Against the raging storm
Until it is safe
