On the Edge

On the Edge
by Saeed Tavakkol

Standing on the edge

Of insanity and reason

Wondering which way to fall

To live the life.

What a quandary it is

Choosing between one

It’s impossible to set them apart.

One delves into the other for so long

To discover its own image in the mirror

Disenchanted madness and sanity

Stare at reflection and

Laugh and laugh and laugh

Realizing how absurd and ridiculous

The other one looks.

The poet and the truth

by Azadeh Azad on

A poet must tell the truth, and you have told a major existential truth so eloquently. Thank you.
