The art of Madness
is well documented in the patterns
of my bones

But I’m good at it,
so good it makes you angry

Ink soaked quills
kiss the surface of agitated marrow

And when the silence shifts and spills
they forge ivory pockets
that capture the spaces
in-between us

Did you forget,
that you once taught me
how to carry the weight
of my sadness
without slipping

I can only walk on water
when its miles away from the ocean

and I can taste the salt burning
your lips

maybe I should have just penned
you all those mean words
and gave them to a
rainy day

but my teeth still chatter
beckoned by a cold
that only I can weather

I can only walk on water
when its miles away from the ocean

And somehow I managed to pass this into the subconscious of my spacious cellar Smiley
This will never happen again.

Masterpiece as always

sorry for my brevity
sometimes "nice poem" is the highest praise

nothing but everything between the lines

The are very few writers I have met online who consistently show such a mastery over words. I always remember your poems having a lot of texture that I was jealous of. Like something you don't just read but feel as well.

Unless you wrote them to a rainy day; you should send them where they're aimed, imo. They're worth reading.

There are three (online) poets to whom I owe my development, you are one of them.

This is on point.

Your style goes unbroken. These words are as beautiful as any of yours I've read. Truly amazing.

I am with Mute in a sense. I can see you penning this masterpiece and then once its done and all though complete, marching across the room and slapping some face anyway....lol!!

Very beautiful and nice to read your words again.

There is a strong message here but it's a bit muddled. A more direct approach to the allusion of ****iness would've worked really well.
