Killed by the Notion of destiny

Killed by the Notion of Destiny

A dim firelight crackling within,

Stroked by a passion to burn to smoke and rise to seduce the clouds

And nourished by the fervent curiosity to find those secrets

Secrets hidden in between,

In between the hem of blissful illusion and realistic fidelity

 Sparks from two colliding desires,

One to soar away and one to fulfill the meant to be

Yet the meant to be, the touch of a finality

Stagnates the passion and bears down upon the wings

The bright fire of curiosity,

Killed by the notion of destiny

An unknown hauntingness of the distant future burying its roots

Pricking its way into the pores of the external mind,

Threatening to dig deep and knot its way on the pavement

Destiny peaks through, as though thorns hindering the rolling wheel,

Rolling wheel that could traverse onto forest floors and street fairs

Umpteen unknown lands of possibilities,

But the supposedly enlightening far sightedness,

Now it only darkens, kills the fervor to see more, feel more, and know more.

  1. I am no good with poems and I can’t even compose one. This is a good one. 😉
