Happenstance - A Love Poem

Updated on May 19, 2015

At a Glance


(This is a poem inspired by the novel "Message in a Bottle" by Nicholas Sparks. this was published in my blog, and was denied by HP so i need to revise the original content. I was really smitten by the main characters of the story, that I immediately wrote the poem "At a Glance.")


Your eyes are lingering

And creates a deep yearning

I want to uncover what’s within

I want to probe what’s hidden


The remoteness of that stare

I’ve been needing to bare

I can’t even repudiate

It seems not to abate


The riptide gradually subside

And slowly drifts by the seaside

I have a hard time to fasten

This ill feeling that’s contained


My desire is to unleash

All the looming wretchedness

I want us to start a fresh

And free you from neediness



Since the first time I saw you

A spark consumes my ego

Just bear in mind that Happenstance

Is caught in this Parlance…

Message in a Bottle

      Raci, a poem as beautiful and lovely as you. Who is the object of desire here, the desire itself seems to come out and ask this. Lovely,

      hello Phoebe....thank you for the generous comments...until now the thought has not come to mind...but who would not be thrilled to have a book published?it would be a dream come true...hopefully a guardian angel would touch the heart of a publisher...

      I can't begin to tell you how jealous I am of your poetic talent! My own poems look like I had shaken up a jar of random words, but yours is sheer perfection! Will you have a book of poems published?
