                                                    FOGGY LOVE

                          Brazen world of white—meant for lovers by the sea,
                    Thunder chasing fog horns-- shake her lonely restless bed.
                     She can’t help wondering if that warning’s meant to be
                             Last call notice for the crappy life she’s led.

                          Good men loved her and proclaimed it to her face,
                           Bad men used her, left her weeping like a child--
                     Wild nights are worthless-- there's nothing can erase
                   Lamentation of the crazies chased to make the heartbeat wild.

                       A lonely life is tricky--- a slippery burden hard to bear,
                 Whisker-edge teeth sharpen—blithely gnawing to the bone.
                   Maybe it’s not a weakness-- yearning for a soul to share
                  A life the wildest hearts expect they’re doomed to live alone.

                         Foghorn thunder! Blast away –be heard on land!
                      Foggy lives aren’t only nestled neat by sea and sand.

    Poignant w/a sense of security and its expressive need. I think it's about time for the light to burn through the fog, wouldn't you say? Excellent job!

    I like the deep symbolism entangled in the title of your poem. It actually lifts the poem to another level. Nice work of art.
