Black Snow

1. A dangerous vision coveting another,
blurred by envy to need a mental monocle.
she burns in such deadly blast
not to realize the soul already promulgate itself
to the better one.
Nothing can serve as a wake up call
to warn against the penalty point.
What was once a silent partner in thoughts
transform to wicked acts and a stench
not to be overlooked, wanting a friend to be less.

2. Sees up through her friend
both are fine, she wants to be finer
both are well, she wants to be better
a onetime dove becomes arrogantly disloyal
a part-time energy with flashlights
relevant to the downfall of another,
exhibiting abrupt vagaries, 
playing billiards not even to win
but to break the board,
watching closely in a bad timing
to revert all positives with negatives.

3. In the flowing dam of our love,
you poured strong acids of your crude emotions.
you are the one downgrading your worth to a bric-a-brac
your unexplained anger proves the more
that I’m by far better.
On this affliction, you stay rat-arsed,
giving jealousy so much importance
to be obsequious to it.
Time to be matey with the envied has passed,
let this dark heat continue fighting
for the devil may care.

    Funom, your hurt bares it's soul in this one. A pen of tears turns to a pen of indifference brought on by the nagging, never ending pain. I sense there is a healing ink waiting. My best to you, chuck

    A very powerful, passionate read; you write with such an electrical charged passion; well done.

    "you poured...", fabulous line. I like these three very distinct poems, and the passions that they stir.
