Edge Of Night - Poem by Joseph Narusiewicz

Balm of self discovery then the cage
Blood from a tongue of guile
Apothecary of loneliness
Summer rocks in the cold moon
Iconic blue jade like divine Salem
Fog on the gables
Ships rest in the bay of midnight
We walk amidst the shadows
Love as forlorn as desert stars
Shoulders carrying the wait of meaning
Her stain glass broken in the dawn
Prisoners numb with olive branches
Her cheeks red with the luster of fornication
We dwell streets of gargoyle visions
Garlic houses that toil with burning masks
Statues along side gardens of defiance

Twisted trees abject like dying Picasso
Birth in the myriad of pirates
Flee the coming chaos
Strands of kelp ribbons from the myths
Our names from the Celtic castles
Leaves make the Grecian garlands
Hidden into the deep tragedy
Escape the islands of ghosts
Decent into reckless libido
Identity in the masochist nation
Into the music
Into the feckless ethos
Have you felt dread shivering in your heart?
When the mountains cry
When forests fill with crows of Van Gogh
I'm glad your happy on this edge of night
