Dancing with destiny


i am getting tired
of starting afresh
each time
somewhere new;

to you everything was
just a game,
it’s easy to say
i was a fool;

helpless, pretending,
hoping someone would see
i guess i fell straight
into the trap;

i wonder what it feels like
to find the one in this life,
the one we all dream of,
but dreams are’nt just enough;

confused about my very existence
just knowing certain things
will never change for us at all
i did my best to keep going;

tonight, out in the moonlight,
me standing here under the stars,
looking for a diamond in the rough
never knowing when it will show up,
i am ready now;

in the darkness of my mind
as i get ready to breathe my last
i’ve got a confession to make,
loving you was a mistake;

you gave me something
that i didn’t have,
but in my heart you don’t exist anymore
as my mind decides between life and death,
tempting fate and
dancing with destiny,
i am swallowed up in the
sound of my screaming;

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
