Upon the Precipice

Eyes open to the brink

I stand

Broken upon the edge

And though the sky is beating down

You are still above me

Always looking down.

Stretching for the dreams

Beyond your clouds

I burned within the strain

This arrogance has wrought,

And as the fire surged

I took it for desire

Obsession blinds

Focus the mind, focus the soul

Too late

All crumbling down,

The earth races

The sky screams

And I am tumbling through

This dear embrace

To something far more real.

  1. Wooohooo !! This one just screamed out!!!
    The gush of emotions and burst of suppressed feelings was AWESOME!!
    It was a thrill to read this poem…

    When “it” takes over our senses, everything else fades…

    • Got to have it. Everything else is meaningless. Focus, focus, focus, driving you insane. Oh yes, “it” can be a most dangerous thing! But the emotion it brings to bear…insurmountable.

      Glad it spoke to you. It came to me as a sort of scream issuing up from my very veins, so…I think your scream comment was more than appropriate!
