Guest Poem: Gray Dawster

poet365One 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.

Psychological Blaze

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

    • Yes a rather sad offering but I think that it will be one that some readers will be able to relate to, being that mental illness comes in many forms.

  3. Just trying to catch up with all my reading, I am so terrible.

    This is very good, sad but sweet in a terrible way.
