Joiner

I've joined those
who hide inside
afraid of breaking
what we've built
from sticks and mud
along a fault line.
 
I've joined those
without a name
avoiding fire
in the flames.

  3. I, too, join those who maybe commit ironic behavior. The fault line section was great.

  4. Loving "along a fault line" and "avoiding fire in the flames" are not easy ways to go. I really like this one,,it has edges :-)
