Edge

Spread the love

The moment, their lips bade embrace, like sanguine flowers
inscribed with woe, oh passion throbbed like
wound from a
blade. She reckoned fit and faced her foe, h
is eyes sapphire
set in snow, silence wrought with
music flowed.

“Let love be fire because I’m the spark, my soul propitious I
govern the dark.”Perched ‘neath his austere stare, her heart
cried out with righteous air. “I ask not promise nor offer you
pledge, don’t push me because I’m close to edge.” His
words
came out without a breath.

Until the darkest shades of night,
Delirium raised unto its height.

  8. Georgina says:

    This is a very edgy poem and I think your run on lines help this. There is no clear edge to this kind of love. Very poetic and dramatic.

      Thanks for stopping by, so glad you liked it 🙂
      Highly appreciated, have a great week ahead.

  12. barbara says:

    Such a mysterious feel I get from this…and I love it! The atmosphere is shadowy and I wonder if this is their first chance meeting, or new lovers, or enemies. Love how it rhymes, and flows from line to line. 🙂

    1. Sanaa says:

      Hello Barbara,

      Thank you so much, so glad you liked it 🙂
      Highly appreciated, lots of love 😀
      xoxo

  13. Gay says:

    This is all kind of good. The poetry is powerful..meter, rhyme, terse, substantial. The force of the words powerful..full of meaning, emotion, magnetism, passion. This is an unforgettable poem.

      Thanks for stopping by, so glad you liked it 🙂

  17. There is such intensity in this poem… the brightness of the fire, the sharpness of everything. And the last line of the second stanza creates a pause that takes our breath away along with his.

    From the gut.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Hello Magaly,

      Thank you so much, so glad you liked it 🙂
      Highly appreciated, lots of love 😀

      Thanks for stopping by, so glad you liked it 🙂
      Highly appreciated, have a great week ahead.

    This is both beautiful and dark. I love the way you invoke passion here as weapon to be wielded or tense confrontation.

    Powerful voice here.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thanks for stopping by, so glad you liked it 🙂
      Highly appreciated, have a great week ahead.

  20. “I ask not promise or
    offer pledge; don’t push
    me cause I’m close to edge

    Even with love where one is expected to be compromising one still needs to be brave lest one ended being bullied. Very true Sanaa,yes!

  22. Debi says:

    “Let love be fire cause I’m the spark” is a terrific line. While this is darker than you usually write I like it. You got the nitty-gritty of this relationship.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Hello Debi,

      Thank you so much, so glad you liked it 🙂
      Highly appreciated, lots of love 😀
      xoxo

      Thank you so much, so glad you liked it 🙂
      Highly appreciated, lots of love 😀

  24. Bryan Ens says:

    “Passion throbbed like wound from blade” love that simile! I quite enjoy when pets make comparisons that seem so contrary, but work so well none-the-less.

      Hello Bryan,

      Thanks for stopping by, so glad you liked it 🙂
      Highly appreciated, have a great week ahead.

  25. Rall says:

  28. lillian says:

    Just a yearling to this thing called poetry writing, I always learn something new on dVerse….as in the meaning of “enjambment.” 🙂
    I especially like the final couplet here!
    Late to reading this time…..but enjoying over my Sunday coffee!

    1. Sanaa says:

      Hello Lillian,

      Highly appreciated, lots of love 😀
      xoxo

  29. Rommy says:

    You’ve pushed your talents out further with this one. The rhythm suits the delirium you’ve described and there is a sharpness to the seduction that really works. Quite possibly one of your best – and I know you’re getting even better 🙂

    1. Sanaa says:

      Hello Rommy,

      Thank you so much, so glad you liked it 🙂
      Highly appreciated, lots of love 😀

    A very powerful poem, Sanaa. I was especially caught by the line, “silence wrought with music flowed.”

      Thank you so much, so glad you liked it 🙂
      Highly appreciated, lots of love 😀
      xoxo

  33. Jamztoma says:

    Sanaa, this poem is the kind that one dances to when they are feeling sad and mushy. I loved the play on words and the image of the anguished woman. thanks for sharing.

  34. True opposites
    attract.. and i suppose
    it’s a problem for humanity
    as whole..
    when same
    becomes rule
    instead of different..
    there is alWays beauty
    when
    opposites
    get together
    perhaps not
    in the arms
    but
    eyes
    of
    child..
    and strength
    of feat iN fearless Love..:)
