On the Edge of Life

Why do you not ask number of hours I waited
on the edge of the way as this body detonated?
My name? My name is …
In the dark I’m awaiting some unexpected things.
My name is nothing and for you so many things
My name? My name is …
deeper than mind …it’s a soul’s chant.

In the pure excitement I expect an unknown meeting
I expect of you a dazzling and unexpected meeting
I await your face, a strange unknown horizon
to discover the delights stronger than reason.
My name? My name is …
is nothing but a darkness taking shape over me
an encounter to satiate a thought that explodes me.

My name
my name is nothing
my name is used for something else
the night I become that something else.
Why do you not ask number of hours I waited
on the edge of life as this body detonated?
deeper than name …I am a soul’s chant.

    • Hi 🙂
      You left me a comment on another network… I found very fair to this poem!
      you wrote : »I really like this one.. I hope i don’t insult you by saying my mind’s reading voice reads this like a punk -ish rock song… perhaps a hawkwind – style song »

      Tou see in my mind from space … Tom in Space …Thank you for being my friend 🙂
