Prowler


bitter meets br
eaking point at a
serrated, jutting edge
(a poison dagger-
sanity ensues)

injured feral soul
will bite if you should try
to nurse it back to health
(so let it be-
or let yourself be used)

rabid thanks life
for the froth upon its jaw
when confronted by truth
(madness preferable-
but sane just got loose)

Oh my goodness, I love those final two lines. If I'd written them, I'd finally have something to put at the bottom of my page!!! :P *applauds*

Rob Graber
Enigmatic, vaguely frightening, strongly penned; the guiding image is carried through effectively.
