KISMET (One-Shot Wednesday)



I want to get lost

in the mazes

of your heart

in sacred corners

to cure my


within your hands

my hunger lies

poems you write

the tears

it brings

I stagger

through walkways

of your soul

and swim

in the pools

of your eyes

with all that’s

within me

to live

to breathe

to cry 

I wish

it was

so ….

  1. I have to be honest, I have a hard time reading your poetry. Not because it’s bad, but because it is wonderfully full of emotion and love. That simply has not been my experience and I find your poems almost painful at times. That lets me know how good you really are.

    I’m not going to stop reading though! One day, I hope my experiences have changed enough that they don’t hurt.

  2. Such a beautiful poem Amanda! Simple, true and right from the heart!
    ‘Kismet’ is one of my favorite words, I use it so often…
