‘Succumb,

To see the edge

I Shall not show you my rare.

As I behave alone

we speak of the truth,

where no mercy beholds my glance of glare.

I’m within my thoughts

as I do not belong,

I surrender to you; “A place of where.”

To feel of none

I shall not show you a single tear.

As I wait,

I show you my veins

running through my last prayer.

In time I do trust

as to heal my wounds ne’er.

To stray of light

I bathe with hymn of flair.

Whereas my soul wanders

with you, to a moment of scare.

Stamp of approval

    lovely poem; I love your photograph too; I would like to use it in a post I have written called: ‘Your face my friend is a poem’ ; it is an ode: the only line you might feel uneasy about is ‘I bet you’re bit of a buffoon too’ ; I await your permission 🙂

      Hi John, wow. This is such surprising and so amazing!! I wouldn’t ever think anyone would like to use my work for own use, so yes. I give you my permission to use my work. It would be fun to see what you have done with it!!! 🙏🏽😊

    well, what I really am asking is permission to use your wonderfully expressive face, those two photos of you at the top of each post; I would not be using your words though I would draw attention to your website 🙂

        great; I think you’ll like it; I’ve not done anything quite like this before but I’m working on it now; hope to be up in the next hour or so; I’m just as excited as you are; and if there’s anything you don’t like let me know and I can edit it out
