Traveled path bequeaths its welcome on the heart,
Circled forms challenge their gaudy intent of start,
Trusted nature relaxes a fabled heathen gaze,
Musty fate garners strength from encompassed maze.
Wrangled fear grabs lighted globules pasty goo
Tangled box jettisons storied tale of yesterday,
Raveled string begins hunt for continued due,
Graveled face marches forward on knotted clay.
Bangled arm raises hope of lesser victory
Haunted mind grapples ideals seldom been
Mangled dreams fight a courageous story
Vaunted love retakes battles eternally seen.
