    Poem Commentary

    Only on the verge of despair, do we find salvation

    Ambiguous dance of life

    Dance with the devil
    dagger in the back
    noose around the neck
    give me some slack

    Now I receed into my typical theraputic social isolation
    chronic self depravation
    inflicting subtle mutilation
    a taste of exacerbation

    Dance with me darling, be my friend
    love me with no end
    whisper what you intend
    in time my soul you'll mend

    Enemies at bay all around,
    and fires pervert the night sky,
    the hills are on fire, the earths troubles abound
    death my friend, tonight I'll see you where I lie.

    Very frightning poem, but very well written. Koolmom



    I'm sorry I frightened you, but that is life for you. But hopefully like in this poem you have a companion with you to face it.

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
