Poetry

Wanted

I sought sanity
in the taste of your lips,
but the sweetness was
too much to savor,
so I settled for
madness instead.

  1. Really well put together, you said everything that another person would need a lot more space to say, that’s the sign of a craft weaver of wordage my friend

      1. I think it’s a real skill because whilst I sometimes like writing shorter poetry and sometimes aim deliberately for very long poetry, to control both the way you do, is definitely skill indeed my friend xo
