Destiny's Hand

Across chasms of time 
our eyes may meet 
love long unavailed 
will pull at restraint 

tomorrow must come 
and an adamantium sky 
ripples the aurora borealis 
above my meager crown 

My admiration lies in hidden smiles  
as this burgeoning lust rolls all eyes 
secreting the ties that bound us 
I deny its velocity and validity 

As Judas denied christ thrice 
I deny us and what we once held 
hanging trees of knowledge bloom 
the truth is undressed and undenied 

Along the Rose line in all my dreams 
A shrill coming together killed us 
draped in silenced peace I prayed
knowing love burns ever brighter still 

But in these awkward realms of glass
where destiny plays with solid rock 
and deja vu awakes my middle eye 
the blink of a universe trickles tears  

Gently twinkling stars remind me 
on the tip of my tongue a word 
falters to only lay dead in my throat 
to know love I must speak in tongues 

Knowing this I kiss goodbye the earth
letting destiny take hold of my hand
