Play no sad songs
for me today.
While reeling on
the edge of insanity
I might forget myself,
my possessions, my vanity

and slip into the
debauched blackness
never to return to
this oppressive madness.

I read your poems
rich and sweet
then lay roses at
your feet.

Very well written Char
You did a superb job of pulling so much of the unknown into this tight little poem. As usual. So good to click on your name and know I am in for some good reading.

Thanks Char,

Edged: "On Edge"
Char- I love compression. Really like your idea here.

I'd lose "the," before "edge." I think a comma may be called for, after "insanity," since you seem to be going for correct grammar, throughout. Once again, I'd lose "the," before "debauched," but that's just me. I freely amidt to being anti-"the."

Good read. (Been reading your recent posts. Have enjoyed. Sorry, for not always commenting.)

and back!
Hey! Whatchoo got against the edge of insanity? It's where I go to escape reality! Debauchery gets such a bad rap because most people aren't used to the true freedom that the infinite blackness can offer them. I'll see you on the edge!
