Upon the Edge

Sitting on the edge of darkness
Leaning on a distant truth
His feet shuffle,
as we can hear him come through;
This line of loned writers,
each with differences yet teetering on this ledge,
with dark skies encompassing
He staggers and squints the precious light
Yes, sitting on the edge of darkness,
as the crowd of one cries Bravo!

    Somewhat bizarre, sweet precious Lucinda ~ Kind of like the spectators cheering on the gladiators whileas they were killing one another or something ? Makes me imagine the zillionaire sitting in their golden bathroom viewing from afar via something or another ? All the death pain and destruction which furthers their enterprise as also feeds, their morbid delights "*,,*" Smack ~ Thank you for your kind visit and tis good to know that you care ~ Love, John

    This was awesome. The edge of sanity...or insanity...depending on the perspective. Great work!
