The Edge of the Light

There is dark

On the road to Home

It revives

Surprises

When we feel that we’re alone

It cloaks us like ink

 

We reach brink

Of our own limits

Fortune tells

Unheard Tales

The faithless the self impales

Carry no crosses

 

Heartbeats still

Raging fires cease

The disease

Self made ache

We commit the same mistake

Over and over

 

Withered eyes

Seek out the lanterns

Look outside

Not inside

Curtains ruffle as they slide

Concealing outcomes

 

The Light shines

I hold it within

Starry skies

Breath that cries

Outreach of my inner depths

When the will wavers

 

Seek the star

When the night is dark

Like a spark

It will guide

Know that in darkness you ride

The Edge of the Light

 

Reading of the poem:

Shine a Light – Banners

 

« When you come to the edge of all of the light you’ve known and are about to drop off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen. You’ll have something solid to stand on or you’ll be taught to fly » Patrick Overton

Wildcard score

Hidden in the night

Throbbing core

Blinding door

Supernova in making

Silence beckons soft

 

Deltas spin

Around my bosom

Aching flowers

Waning hours

Serendipity watching

Renewed momentum

 

Tedium

Rearranging paths

Salted rain

Subdued pain

Explosions inside of me

Black hole takes over

Splitting ache

Within the bosom

Standing guard

With regard

Consideration for her

As the wolf pack moves

 

Stand at ease

Neither lead nor tease

Discover

Underneath

Flying her colours on face

Mark engraved like ace

 

Clear patterns

For my perusal

Wearing Her

Like a glove

Heaps of laces dissolving

My mind revolving

 

Reading of the poem:

Look at me

I reflect your face

Shining bright

Sketched in me

Your inks an invitation

To discover nights

 

See me through

Light’s mysteries flee

From my touch

Lurching sparks

I reach within owls’ feathers

Gathering fate’s quills

 

Whiff my scent

Pick up on the shards

Embalming

Preserving

Remnants of sunshine and ache

As I exhale dark

 

Smell me dry

Of memories might

Conserving

Observing

The scent of despair and hope

Heady wanderings

 

Voice me soft

I fall like caress

From your lips

To my wait

Where two and two make more else

A fusion of sorts

 

Scream my name

In tattoos that writhe

Through my scars

Like dewdrops

On your hair and shoulders’ curve

The moon will glisten

 

Listen now

I speak of Beauty

Love your heart

Bless your soul

There are landscapes in my mind

Where we fly like birds

 

Hear me out

I will convince you

Of lovers

Who wander

In desert plains bringing rain

Like the rolling moss

 

Sense me bare

With lust and toil’s care

Light me spleen

Luster sheen

A repetition of thoughts

Litany’s prayers

 

Sixth me flare

Where shadows lead way

Light dies thin

Hurt follows

Second skins peel into day

Bright with future’s rub

Twice it hovered dark

Above my bluest skies’ rims

An attempt of Death

 

I looked within it

Prancing around full of glee

Fanciful patterns

Death smiled ever pleased

With my witty play’s antics

Dark prepared for me

 

While I drunken danced

Much engaged with its shadows

In witty exchange

 

blood thomasecon com

 

Twice now eluded

Once a bleeding mess I slept

Stitched back into life

 

It breathed silent hurt

Sorrow its ache of soul’s reach

As it felt me go

 

love mariska karto nonsensesociety com 2

 

The clawing despair

Unwilling separation

I won’t let you go!

 

“Please come back to me!”

The sorrow muffling its voice

It said beseeching

I smiled and moved on

Silently into waking

The table I left

 

Spreading from within

Once mine sole growing tissue

In fortnight halted

Death screamed so shrilly

Even more than my soul’s blues

He wanted my flesh

 

In agony’s throngs

Renewed at my feet weeping

The fall of unfair

I am holding on

You are mine for the keeping

I won’t let you go!

 

Freed by his dark clutch

I wandered into blue worlds

Spilt moonbeams in skies

 

fire 1ms net

 

I filled underworlds

With the light of sunflowers

While he followed pale

 

My light piercing him

Hollow yearning for my skin

His darkness within

I reached still further

Into swollen Eye of Time

Looked into God’s grace

 

Death followed me still

Into infinity’s realms

The shadow his face

Footsteps in the dark

Brittle bride for the keeping

He told me weeping

 

Begging to be his

Beyond infinity’s grasp

I danced yet higher

I looked into voids

Light exchanged sparkled glances

Within my bright eyes

 

Filled with mystery

Of unexpected chances

Of the depths of cries

 

battles itsdilovely com bellydance-superstar-petite-jamila-with-veils

 

I flew, twirled curving

Escaping all dark matter

As it sucked endless

 

I looked back at Death

Told him soothing, don’t you fret

My darling lover

 

Asleep me

 

I will now give in

Quit living on borrowed Time

Break the endless loops

 

Remember the quote

Another chance you will get

Never twice alone

All within without

You will have soon I promise

Teacher tell me now

 

As the light pushes

The other end of void pulls

I must find out how

My eyelashes kissed

Death held on to me steadfast

Took me to his heart

 

Said heartbroken, mad

Spilt his tears on jagged end

I won’t let you go!

A whiff of your scent

Captures my aching nostrils

Signals our parting

.

The taste of your lips

In heated argument roam

Provoking my own

.

Your footsteps echo

As they slowly fade away

From my memories

.

The glory of you

Between Dark and Light

Your faceless presence

The feel of your hands

Deliberate and loving

Lost in our caress

.

All this forever

Planted in our DNA

Fickle cell mutates

Within your torrid embrace

Height of Senses? Love!

Mocking hill stood stark

Against pains of memory

That stretched envy green

.

Bluebirds flew silent

Into cages that shut light

Delicate bones snapped

.

Feather by feather

The peacock loses glory

As the swamp moves in

.

A stretch of time’s wings

Borrowed from ancient black caves

Where noises spun dark

.

Silver coins drop

Exchange is in losses’ weights

I will read your fate

.

Hop to the music

Twist of luck for you hunchback

Quasimodo heals

.

Hold hands with puppets

Heart reeling with the strings’ pull

Pearl by pearl stitch souls

.

Adorn fools’ beret

Step dancing into the jig

Smile is for wearing

.

Grimacing heart’s ache

Twitched and writhed in irony

Happily ever laughter
