Foresee the
vicarious,
foreboding
fables;

Rain clouds
over drought.

Otherwise,
we'll be as ants
undermined
by a downpour.

Beware the lies and wool for the eyes.
Michael Blonski May 2016

Write with intensity

for
stars

In dire straights
the human being's
collective
  conscience
   coalesces
    compassion.
Always to create
in those moments
nothing short of miracles.

Keith Labonte May 2016

With bountiful botanical seedlings
surrounded by vital emeralds of evergreen.

Hark! Twas the season's change!

In the midst of the morning might
I notice the humble sage.

Within the rains.

Daybreak seemed
more dreamy
than the last.

A soft coo
echoed
in the crisp
pooling illusion.

How I reveled in the brisk elation.
How I longed to be in the mist.

Hands were tingling from the heat of a cup.

The door was ajar.
The plans were on the table.

Dreary, the months past December...
...now so easily forgotten.

The most beautiful
song
I ever sang
was simply
the sound
of your
name
on my lips
                                    The most
beautiful                            
                  dream
I ever
had                        
                  was the one
You gave      
me
I'm only living
on the chance
that dreams
      come true......
.
     .
          .
                       ........
                                 I'm only living
                                for you

Thunder rolled offshore
by the dancing light horizon.

I sat quietly on a wicker chair.

Through the boring pouring
on that somber, humid morning
open seas were surly churning
the fathoms of the mind.

I creaked atop that wicker chair.

Facetiously; I was grieving.
Though in fact I was not leaving
the waves did seem appealing.

I spent the daze careening
on that rickety wicker chair.

You said it didn't matter
you would accept me anyway
but when it came to the day
you forgot

I could tell you were uncomfortable
so I tried to hide
under a cover that killed me inside

My thoughts were intoxicated
I could not forget
it poisoned my mind

all I could think of
was not being accepted
and it destroyed my life

I gave up
I couldn't cope
I lost all hope

because the thought of my friends unacceptance killed me

Should I let them go?

Its not so far away
Man made nature
Water colors
Artificial suns
Apartments
The loving arms of hell
I had forgotten the way the waves crash on the shore
Of the outer banks

I live in cities
All the life around me
Is only death

I took a rorshak test
And saw fire
Armies marching
Tinted windows
Kevlar vest
And bullet proof glass
I want to go somewhere again
Where the nature isn't addicted to chemicals

Its not so far away

Where I can watch the crane fly
Over the most tranquil waters
Of my mind

I aspire
To nothing higher
Than to bring light into your world
A fire
Out of control
That keeps you warm

I want to be your favorite song
Because you know that I was written for you

I become
Not a strum from some guitar
But chords in your mind I play with
Sweet music
I cannot help but create
To let you know that you are loved

I want you to be my biggest fan
Because it matters if you sing along

i watched you,
walk away,
from everything
you had.

her love,
her trust,
her warmth,
her loyalty.

i watched her face,
the different emotions,
from the words you are saying to her,
distant.

she did nothing,
to deserve this,
she truely loved you,
with everything.

physically,
you wanted you,
mentally,
she needed you.

i watched,
walk away,
from her life,
because of a lie.

you deny it,
deny it to yourself,
she is the only one broken hearted,
she is the only one who cared.

lie,
that's why,
you had to walk away,
because lie.

you loved her,
more than anything,
more than words could explain,
more than you could ever tell her.

so you walked away,
away from her,
because you could never admit to yourself,
you loved her.

you left her,
broke her,
broke promises,
and shattered two hearts for the price of one.

her heart,
will heal,
eventually,
she will love again slowly.

your heart,
will never heal,
will always want her and won't let go,
let go of her.
