Pieces Ascatter - Poem by Anitah Muwanguzi

Destiny's mocking brows shot up

when I called on her

fate smiled this rueful mischievous little frown

I demanded they speak plainly

they shrugged unconcerned

'dejavu, dreams lie' destiny said

sparks, chemistry, unspoken understanding

fate said just a figment of my imagination

love and impatience closest pals she said

deep wrenching sadnesses, delusions of grandeur of happily ever after

all in the mind, she too mocked

destiny offered an olive branch

'close up you said', I inquired

'still my beating heart, close my eyes seconds before the picture forms'

'yes' she finished on a breath
