To Vanessa

Written by: Edward Dzonze

Hazy,
fading 
pictures 
awaiting 
the 
justification 
of 
an 
artist
Strange 
echoing 
voices
demanding 
some 
clarification.
A 
microscopic 
assertion
of 
a 
kaleidoscopic 
impression 
drawing 
a 
break 
through
from 
a 
labyrinth.......
......i 
pity 
the 
poet 
in 
love

I 
pity 
the 
artist,
burdened 
with 
the 
onus
of 
drawing 
the 
hazy 
picture 
clear.
A 
picture 
anticipated 
and 
still 
imaginery

I 
pity 
the 
writer,
for 
burdening 
his 
parker 
pen
to 
lay 
the 
answers 
plain 
on 
paper.
The 
answers 
to 
accompany 
the 
picture

I 
pity 
the 
scientist 
too,
for 
coaxing 
the 
machines 
to 
magnify
the 
microcosm 
of 
a 
poet 
in 
love
to 
an 
understandable 
version.
The 
poet 
in 
love 
with 
Vanessa

I 
pity 
the 
poet,
for 
having 
regained 
a 
loving 
heart 
once 
lost,
only 
to 
surrender 
the 
keys 
yet 
again
and 
this 
time.....the 
master 
key 
was 
not 
spared
.......gone 
the 
poet's 
heart 
to 
Vanessa

I 
pity 
this 
pit 
the 
poet 
fell 
in
for 
it 
is 
colourfully 
painted
and 
on 
all 
the 
walls 
scribbled;
SHOW 
SOME 
LOVE
Love,a 
picture 
born 
out 
of 
those 
hazy,fading 
pictures
Love,an 
answer 
to 
those 
strange 
reverberating 
voices
Love,the 
detected 
intractible 
kaleidoscopic 
virus 
by 
the 
microscope
Love,Vanessa 
is 
the 
labyrinth 
i 
found 
the 
poet 
wandering
...............drink 
it 
Vanessa
ITS 
NOW 
SAFE
