Something Destined: An Unwanted Fate (Poem)

Updated on June 24, 2016

Another Love Story

Most of the time, I stay on the theme of love, and sometimes pain and darkness when I write my poetry. This poem is a continuance of one of those themes.

I believe we all relate to loving. We all want to feel this and when we don't it's sad. It's also agony when we do, and we cannot be with the person we want to be with, or it's like a lovely continuing dreamscape if we do find it and are able to hang on tight with that special person forever.

This poem is about love that cannot be denied, but somehow is not wanted by either person for whatever reason. Enjoy.



Our Unwanted Fate

© 2016 Missy Smith

No matter who I try to

like more than you…


no matter who you try to

like more than me…


it will never ever work to

set us free.


Don’t you get the pull of

us…


the gravity that floats us

always to meet up?


Maybe only in dreams we

See…


but we are still somehow

meant to be.


Obstacles, they plague us,

there is no doubt…


but they are not even strong

enough to rule us out.


Fate is a fact for us; it

seems…


even if we have to love each

other from opposite sides of

the sea.

      Melancholy is an emotion like none,

      In crowd one feel alone.

      Excellent depiction. missy, Pl do read my poem 'friend who left', you may like it too.

      Missy....Your poetry has incredible power.....like the blast I experienced to my solar plexus & instant sting to my eyes when I read this amazing poem. It says a million different things in so few but profound words. I can only feel the explosion of recognition.

      These emotions come through you from the very depths of your being...there could be no other way.

      Your fierce emotions connect with me in ways I find difficult to describe...but I believe it's silent understanding that needs no explanation.

      This could be my very favorite piece so far Missy & I know I'll return to read it's moving & tormenting message again & again. Paula

      In a strange way, a bit like my poem Sometimes a man .... longing that cannot or will not be for whatever reason or reasons. We all share this, it seems. Nicely expressed. Sweet video.

      P.S What's with the censorship?

      Wonderful words once again that enforces the fact that you wear your heart on your sleeve for all to see Missy. I can relate to this from personal experience but can't write about that here. It has a similar theme to my own poem "The Farthest Shore"and there will always be a willing audience to read any poem of love, unrequited love, or heartbreak. Well done once again.

      Hi Hari, and thank you for stopping by to read another one of my love stories through my poems. Yes, I have read your poem that you suggested. I believe I read it when you first posted it. I agreed with it, and liked your dialogue very much.

      Thanks again. ~Missy

      That means so much Paula. I love when I can pull out a poem in such a simple way, but like you said, with a million different meanings to be found.

      I do write from my heart and soul; my good vibes and bad ones, so, for others to get me, just really exhilarates me. I'm truly blessed to have found a passion for poetry. It's brought a connection with others I never thought I would or even could have.

      Please return and read it as often as you like. I would love that. Thank you so much, Paula. Your friend forever, ~Missy

      Thank you again, Manatita. Well, the picture of me with censorship was directed at someone on another site to make a point, or I should say, to settle something. This person said I talk too much. lol...So I put up that picture to send a message, and I liked it, so I used it here. No real purpose here though. :)

      Thank you, John. You are quite right, there always will be an audience for love, whether be tortured words or serene. I'm so glad you like it.

      Ha ha. Put a piece of tape on your lips (jokingly). If you make him/her laugh, then that lightens their burdens and also yours. Hey he. You have of course found that human emotions can be troublesome. Here as well as in the outer world.

      I would change it though. You're very beautiful; so let me see your beauty. Again, if you enter into someone else's night, you have actually stepped down. Remain alert! You're doing so well! In Love and Light.

      That person was a he, and he used to like everything I ever had to say, but now, he just seems to disregard my thoughts. I think he is sending me a message, right? Hahahaaaa... No hard feelings though. I guess we both got the message. I can talk a lot. I guess I'm an intuitive talker, as in my poetry, I talk with personal preference to a topic rather than a point blank approach. Hey, I'm a writer, what do they really expect, right? (laughing out loud) ;)

    • manatita44 profile image

      manatita44 14 months ago from london

      Yes, and like poets we are sensitive people. Sometimes we mean well, though. I saw a comment from someone to you. A woman. I think she meant well, and you seem to take it gracefully.

      In my case, 99% of the time I'm trying to inspire, but I may not always take the soft approach. Anyway, lets point to your excellent poetry once more. Much Love.

      Missy Smith 14 months ago from Florida

      Yes, I know the comment you are talking about I think. I try to take things lightly. I like my work and if someone doesn't understand it or think it wrong, well then, that is their entitled opinion, so why fight that.

      Now, if it was a way over the top comment that had a continuing lure to start an argument of right and wrong, I may take a few stabs at the person. But, as it was just toward poetry, I'll just settle with it wasn't her cup of tea, and that will be that. lol...

      Oh, and it's fine if people like to express a little harshly sometimes. It weighs me down none. I'm pretty confident that way. ;)

      Missy is a trooper. I have seen her react gracefully to the comment of one of our REAL JERKS around here. A guy who thinks he was put on this earth to "correct" everyone about everything, because HE KNOWS BEST. One who thinks nothing of insulting and being nasty. He makes me ill! Ah, but never fear....I defended Missy & gave him a good verbal beating. One he's deserved for a long long time! I will only tolerate so much! I've reached the age where I just don't give a damn & will let someone have it...when necessary!.....I refuse to stand by useless when someone is being abused!

      Missy, I really like your poem and have found several different meanings to it. I have been there before. Great work. Stella

      Thank you dear Paula. I am so glad you back me up. I just don't have the want to or energy to fuss with people who obviously only want to start something with attempts to make me feel low or bad. They are so wasting their time. lol. I'll never feel that way about what I write or about who I am. So, yeah, I'm glad there are people that get me like you. It's so refreshing. I was bragging to a young friend of mine from Amsterdam just today about my friend Paula. He's like..."Alright Missy, I get it; you think your friend Paula is awesome." I think I told him about you before today. whoops! lol. You do inspire me though. :)

      Too much depressive and saddening lines. Fate plays wicked games with some lives. The videos are also of the same mood creating much tension within hearts. You crafted and expressed it so appealingly.

      True Venkat, I suppose these are some depressive lines. However, I can say that I'm pleased you described them this way. You totally got the feel of the emotion here in this one. It was supposed to be dark and depressive. I hoped to express it in a way the reader could feel anguish and despair as well. After all, we've all been in love, and I would be willing to bet, we have all had a certain love that was full of heartbreaking moments. It's very sad, but in a strange way, also very beautiful. I hope you agree. :)

      You are right, Missy. I agree with it. I experienced those moments for some years. But, we kept on holding to each other and took care not to break the relationships. And finally, turned them into strong mental and spiritual attachments that nobody could break.

      It is a love similar to Romeo and Juliet isn't it? Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I do love that love story. I mean, who doesn't, right? :) Thank you dear Frank.

      Missy, I think we have a lot in common. I just see.it in your poetry and in your comments to others. :)

      That said, onto the poem. LOL. This poem reminds me of those wistfully romantic takes. The kind that leaves a person hoping for a happy ending that never quite fully satisfies yet somehow still seems fitting.

      Yes, I think I would agree with your assessment of this poem. Thanks Shanmarie.
