Destiny fell

A dreamless sleep upon pillows of words

Rattled inside her breathless head

Couplets rhyming and unrhyming

Harmonious discord and echoing whispers

Rumours passing igniting fires

Licking flames to fire the torch

Of desire and rage and lust and fear

Awoke in real time sweat

Awash with senses filled and drowning

Arms outstretched to reach the possible

Still obscured by clouds of tears

Wrapping around futures and pasts

Sweeping the tempting to a place beyond reach

Roads that close distant doors

Strips of white disappearing dying

Disappointment’s hand upon the paper

Illusion’s eye clear winking closing

Destiny falling to her dreamless sleep

Upon pillows of words
