The Edge Of Forever

The Edge Of Forever short poem

Photo by Corey Leopold

How long this, the dawn
A promise sure to be broken
This sun at zenith perched
Of high despair at noon
How long this, the twilight
A grim reminder of fail
What keeps me up this night
So sleepless and tormented
This presumed sense of worth
And future sure but dead
How long the final slumber
This blackness everywhere
Away with these cuffs
This thought of without it
Poised at the edge of forever
I leap into the nowhere

Hopeless romantic, grounded realist, eternal optimist, brooding pessimist. All these are me. I am all of them. When I referenced my diaries for poems written decades (1985-99) ago, I was surprised to find that most related to either Love or Death. I was even more surprised to discover that, with a quick change here and there, many of them could be interchanged to reflect either. It was in this way that I discovered in myself the obsession that Sigmund Freud labelled as Eros and Thanatos, a theme that has fascinated thinkers, poets and writers for centuries. Here you will find Eros and Thanatos and a bit of Philos in between.

Forever! short poem

Forever Pain seems like a beautiful concept, as I sit contemplating your demise. I gazed into eyes constantly deceitful in nature, I guess that would explain you ignorant behavior. Love seem like it would last forever, but thoughts of selfishness

On The Edge

On The Edge short poem

I recognized the vitriol. There was blood on your hands. The invisible was burning in dark. This was the black moon and this was the alienation. An animal climbs on your shoulders. It goes on and on. Was it the
