. . . Loathing The Heartless Mist

Updated on May 21, 2015

Tigers, dragons, and clowns lace the shore unseen

Plotting, blotting, and killing "a" dream.

While struggling bones reach a sweet odor it seems

Every drop of his life; every drop of her drooping life


There sat I weeping the last teary tear.


It came crawling slow--mocking the rain, blood, and snow

Taking its pleasure and seizing the time.

Making a life pulse frozen in a useless lover's rhyme.

So watching her wink as the heartless fog so consumed.


There I cried, there we died, and her kisses turned to mist.

      Rather beautiful but sad.

      A sad emotion well expressed. The phrase "teary tear" seems a little repetitive. Perhaps "burning?"

      Love how you make clowns so sinister. Why do people think clowns are for children? Clowns are the cover for ...you name it. Bracketing the poem with the mist filled pictures is a lovely touch.

      Interesting but sad Kenneth. It sounds like a puppet of a couple skeletons in love whose dreams are destroyed by a clown. I voted it up, shared and pinned it.

      My Dear Marie,

      Not to argue the point, but say that phrase with "teary tear" in it and maybe it will make sense.

      Thanks for not only being my Special Friend, but a Great Help to my expressions via typing.

      tirelesstraveler,

      Thank you so much for your very nice remark.

      I felt by having clowns be a bit sinister would come across better than them laughing and pushing cotton candy to anyone who comes their way. Thanks for being so observant.
