Destined for Disaster


"There is a sacredness in tears.

They are not the mark of weakness but of power.

They are messengers of overwhelming grief and of unspeakable love."

Washington Irving

This Montage of memories, somehow frozen in time

Speechless despair, guttural pain of mine

Tragic hero of Shakespearean martyrdom

Last call for self-sacrifice...True love find home.

From Maslow to Aristotle, seemingly overnight

Fear of the unknown, suddenly frozen with fright.

So count your blessings and cherish your world

Gusting winds of change: quite revealing when unfurled.

True Love on the Mend… True Love Destined to End.

Yet still, I hold it dear, hidden deep within my heart

'Fore I pray, but just once, be it miles; lest we part

To glimpse at one’s soul,

a weakness; this power,

In times of doubt,

I weep as I cower.

Hopeless Romantic your fool is your master

For true Love is destined to end in disaster

So for now,

with Love as my key,

These shadows... you see

...Are merely silhouettes

Destined to be set free.




To be, or not to be:
that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler 
in the mind to suffer 
The slings and arrows 
of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms 
against a sea of troubles,... 

Wm. Shakespeare
