at the razor edge of madness,
the fierce break of waves
along the shore line.
In dark eyes that catch mine
in dusty corridors of dreams.
I feel you in the wild of wolves
the vigil of birds at my
midnight window,
in the sacred dust of bones.

  1. A perfect piece at the right time, as I am literally “at the razor edge of madness” because the connection to my virtual server keeps breaking, leaving the code I’m working on stranded in my terminal window, and the web app the code creates hopelessly broken.

  2. I was dropped from your following. WordPress.glitches are getting annoying.
    Anyway, I loved the opening and really loved the verve that this was confirmed by. Truly lovely. 😊

  3. This poem appeals to my dark lupine gothic steampunk vampire soul. I imagined the solitary stroll on the beach, meeting cautious glances by strangers with distant stare. The darkness of dreams, wolves, and birds have that reach into my subconscious and then the dust of bones just nailed it. Wuthering Heights? Absolutely.

          1. Awesome! My vociferous hyperbole can be emotionally misleading at times. If you raise the specter of my Dark gothic lupine steampunk vampire persona, you know you have my deepest admiration. 🤩

          2. I’ll take you up on that Rene. I just visited Resa and took a gander at your alter egos, Princess Blue Holly and Rene Rosso. As we like to say in Alabama, “ya’ll are a real hoot.” Don’t mind the wee dragons underfoot we’re like kitty cats with scales. 😉

          3. LOL 😆 I won’t say anything. WP for all its quirks has definitely allowed talented people to connect in virtual communities that are tons of fun and enlightening. We have our own version of Sesame Street.

  4. So many comments for this amazing poem.
    What can I do to get my comment noticed?
    Hmm, well I love the poem. I need to consult someone sensible about my comment. Think I’ll talk things over with the ‘oron.
    In the meantime, it’s fabulous, it’s madness, it’s midnight dust. You rule the poetry world!
    Also, you’ve reminded me…I need to pick up some razors!
