“LA Times” by L. K. Thayer

there are times in LA

when I’ve wanted to leave it

leave the sun

for a bit of reality

but it’s got a hold on me

at times shaking

begging me to give it

one more chance

not to abandon the dreams

the promise

like a romance novel

or an obsession

you can’t let go of

you can’t put it down

you want to see

what happens

at the end

and find out

who gets

the girl

    To Lisa
    Your poem explodes.

    Tucked In The Crevices

    A hopeful poem full of inspiration
    the ability to restructure and build yourself
    I love it
    but sometimes I go down deep black
    to where the poem does not reach
    can not reach
    where the silence rings in me
    stronger than a word
    a place that does not even
    have the energy to go for the girl
    and the feeling does not exist
    and only the silence has a possibility
    then later or in the middle of that
    something rises up and I see the girl again
    finding a fragment of the dream
    wounded and torn
    but a touch of the grand eloquent
    and the symphony plays again.
    You poem captures that
    and God bless you.
    There is a gulf to cross and
    now I am in the ocean
    but either i will see land
    learn to swim
    or dissolve.
    tucked in the crevices
    Thnak you for the poem Lisa
