Poem: Lover’s Embrace

O cruel fate
Temptress of our desires
Am I destined
To be there
Silent and strong
To see and to hear
Of the joy in lives
Of others
To even play
A part
However small
In joining lovers
Destined by the
Stars to be
Yet not be held
In that warm embrace

I love to write poetry and blog regularly about topics such as mental health, sci-fi/fantasy series, faith, sexuality, and politics.

  1. Well it's a common recurrence but not a regular recurrence–ie it recurs pretty often but not at an easily determinable pattern. And it comes in different degrees. Almost everyday there's a depressing thought in relation to it but it's quickly dismissed. Anywhere from a few days to a couple weeks there's the occasional funk where it occupies my thoughts for a longer period of time and it can be anywhere from a few minutes to an hour–but I generally snap myself out of it and there's usually only a few tears so all's good. 😀
