Treasure Island

amanda Buffington


The Red Thread of Destiny


entangled with no escape,
it connects us
intwined with one thing
one destiny
it holds, with strength greater than ten thousand men,
but it seems as fragile as glass
you can't escape
it catches you at every twist and turn
always too many steps ahead of you to count

Even if you run fast
in destiny's eyes, you are as frozen as ice
trapped in it's stronghold,
it catches you by the wrist,
ankle
neck
you can't escape
Stuck like a moth in a spider's web
'i'm not letting go'

your destiny,
your true meaning
wrapped around you
the red thread, telling you how fast you were going to run,
what twist or turn you were going to take,
and how far you would go until you finally noticed
there was only one path the whole time
it always knew..
it knew all along

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
