Threads of Destiny ~

She glimpsed at him, enchanted with his gaze,
In attempt to fathom the essence of his endlessness.
Her ruinous wrath changed into peaceful maze,
His light embraced her, caressing inner gloominess.

Corners of his eyes sparked with livid flames
Entrancingly shimmered as they were dancing,
Swaying in depths of his azure cloudiness.
A wild firestorm of his soul was consuming.

Yonder she knew,
with him, she will live until the end of time.

He glanced back; in her emeralds, he sought
The purport of life, and found boundlessness.
For this love, all his former battles were fought,
In untamed spirit was a hidden gift of joyousness.

Behind forlorn eyes, she was stronger than the sea,
For sharing inner strength he wished to thank her.
Lighthouse of her magic taught him to be free,
In a stormy ocean, he found his only anchor.

Thereat he knew,
they shall be free until the end of time.

Encompassing power of affectionate endeavor,
The flame of revolutionary passion,
Interwoven threads of the notion "Forever",
All of it, surrounding them in infinite fashion.

~ About the Poem

I write a lot, and I write down everything: quotes, notes, chapters, fiction, non-fiction, fanfiction, poems, short stories, and random thoughts.

This one was personal. I met my partner when I was only fifteen, and I met him on his 18th birthday. It was a big age difference back then, and we were pure opposites, but we made it work. About a year later, on the back of my psychology textbook, I wrote down a series of random thoughts about how I felt when we met, and how he told me he felt on that same day. Some of them rhymed. One of my friends borrowed my textbook and read what I've written. He made fun of me, told me I was being pathetic and delusional, and also mentioned my relationship will never last. He wasn't the first one to say so, and I shrugged. It didn't matter to me what others have to say.

This year, on our 9th anniversary, my partner and I got engaged. We bought a place together, and we'll officially live together soon enough. In a home of our own. Considering the recent events in our lives, it seemed like a good idea to put random thoughts together and publish them as a poem.

Maybe it's not one of the best poems around, but it's a reminder that some things can and will last, even against all odds.

And maybe I wasn't so delusional after all.
