for I have not faced the darkest night
nor heard the howling demons
that hunger for my soul

I have not felt the razors edge
nor heard the wooing whispers
tempting me to use it
to let my blood be
the ink of my final poem

A RUNAWAY LOVER

by thereluctantpoet

A RUNAWAY LOVER
By Charles Robert Lindholm

You Give Me Mornings

by markfahmy

you-give-me-mornings

you give my soul a break
from its internal fights
and you give me mornings
