Inside the tower

After Psalm 61

Inside the tower,
the place yearned for
and found

hearing the noise
outside, the shouts,
feeling the ground

shaking, but safe
inside the tower,
the door tightly 

closed and firm
a barrier against
the hordes, outside;

safety is found
inside the tower,
only there,
only there.
