Her beauty was as painful
to behold as staring at the
sun. Undone. Better to be
blinded than be reminded
of the disdainful cold of her
Sometimes, it is better to forget,
sometimes, we are forced
to disregard what we were once led to believe,
that there are rivers
that do not run to the sea, that swamp hell
with the detritus of promises none kept,
and broken dreams,
flushed away, through the toilet of our cities;
as the air thins quicker than the forest
we forgot, a life-time ago.
Delighted! I received two recent additions to my ever growing collection of poetry from Paul F. Lenzi. As Paul’s biggest fan across the pond, I heartily recommend reading any of this wonderful poet’s endeavours.
A prolific and pensive poet, Paul F. Lenzi has written more than twenty books, and pens a hugely popular and successful blog (https://poesypluspolemics.com/). Paul is a keen advocate for other writers, and has long been supportive of other poets (myself included). This man has as much love as he has talent (no small wonder, he is widely adored).

And finally, I am delighted to share that Paul F. Lenzi has kindly written the ‘blurb’ for my forthcoming collection, ‘Legacy’ (of which I’ll keep you posted).
Keep smiling and keep writing, much love from Baldy.
