Forsaken Destiny

Reverberations of fate
echo within love that comes too late
to last
relegated to the past

yet living on within a heart
that denies each chance to start
to walk another way
all to keep their fate at bay

Yet unspoken feelings wait
for time cannot abate
the power that they hold
or the numbness of the cold

that steals o'er spirit's fire burning
to cover up and ease the yearning
while senses dull till eyes no longer see
the brightness of their very own forsaken destiny

as memories reverberate
that perchance this love that comes so late
might shine . . .
