One of the M3 Readers who stepped up when I made the last call for guest posters was Gray Dawster of Poetically Refined. Some of you will recognize him from the Flash in the Pan this quarter. Let’s open his offering.
Not always are our advances as they are first perceived. Gray offers us an encounter which holds consequences unimagined in the innocence of an embrace.
Loving kisses upon a tainted brow
A romantic embrace with hands around
First salient from the sidewalk
Now touching his love,
Eagerly entwined once more
His affectionate caresses misunderstood
Arching and twisting
She breaks free from his grasp
Running away safe at last
She rushes across a highway
Frightened of an impending attack
Alas she is hit by a car, lifeless in his arms
She is gone and never coming back
Broken, he cries out in anguish
His wife dead but now at peace
All in a blaze from such a cruel disease
