The suicidal poet

by Ralkkai

I know of this poet
the real suicidal type
that writes these
little minimalistic free-form
things
full of depression
sadness
anger
dark rooms
and dirty dreams –
Some of the best
that I have read in
a long, long time.
He is able to say in three lines what
it would take me in three pages.
Everything
I have read by him seems
closer and closer
to the edge of it,
scraping and skipping
thoughts
across the pond
of hell
and each one just
a little bit closer to it.
I haven’t heard from him
in 5 days.
