Poetry: Madera House by J.G.Gordon

Genre: Dark Poetry

 Outside whitewashed, pretty as it pleases
Inside imagination hides from the fear and pain
But death never comes to those who pray
Living grows you old
No escaping as a young
Freedom only comes to the elder and not in mind
Devastation is here like a child playing hide and seek with a vicious animal
There are smiles outside, the pillars holding up the heaviness in the mind
Inside see the wreckage of a small soul
Innocence is a bloom that withers in darkness
