A Place Called.... - Poem by Michael Saurer

Lying down low
On a place
All of us know
face to face

The place
Between heaven
- and hell
The place
Between genius
- and madness
The Place
Between hope
- and fear

It’s a place I know well
Even if I don’t want to
It’s a part of my cell
And you know the place too

The place
Between terror
- and joy
The place
Between apocalypse
- and resurrection
The place
Between lie
- and truth

You know the name
That it is called
But you have shame
To say: ‘It’s called
- Love –‘
