Fragments of Madness

By Peyton1

Torn between the fabric of inner space and lost time--
I sift through fragments of madness to start a new rhyme.

Playing with the darkness thru a reflective black shard--
The deck starts a new game now, without its high card.

The inflictive dagger falls silent, but the wars must still rage--
The liquid in my veins darker than the ink embedding this page.

A futile balancing act on this glimmering razor's edge--
As I numbly fumble along on this most precarious ledge.

The slightest falter turns a laser sharp finish the color of rust--
Those things that once were, become as pale wind unto dust.

Just because they can't see, doesn't make them blind--
But as much a state of existence as a state of mind.

In the blink of an eye, whether you see the other side or not--
It's too late when you realize you're standing in the wrong spot.

The serenity of true madness, not readily understood by most--
I embrace it with eagerness, I've had much practice as its host.

They say every evil thing in this world has its own proper plAce......
So... Is it true that I mean you no harm? ....Hi, my name is Ace.....

Glad to see you slingin' it again!! You lay your cards on the table nicely. Love how you add your signature in there too! Very cool write and it hits deep in those sensitive spots too!

    I greatly appreciate your comment miss Kendra, thank you so much! I've missed being here within these digital pages, chatting and commenting with you guys, DP has been "home" since the first day I became a member. I don't fit anywhere else, hopefully I can get back into full swing with writing again......I am quite behind. Thanks bunches for all your words of encouragement, they carry much inspiration for me. It's always good to hear from you, we'll chat again soon. Later, cool chic!..............................~Ace~
