Fate's Occasion

Singular and thus finite
begins the spiral's spinning plight
of eminent foretold collision
love commences in a vision

Unbeknownst before the time
an effigy that burns the mind
now filters clear, emotions raw,
the present image striking awe

Eyes and hair on perfect face
with pouted mouth, the heart doth race
into the thoughts, how to proceed?
laggardly? ...with godly speed?

Clumsily one gathers poise
do thine drums work? there is no noise
at the point, this cosmic stead 
a vocal soul must forge ahead

Words abashed but striking through
perceived by them, return to you
is that a chorus sounding there?
without belief just simper stare

Lives become one single strand
as two entangle by the hand
joy begins to warmly swell
for fate's occasion, two hearts fell

This is really spectacular. I'm jealous of just about every single line in this piece' jealous that I didn't think of them! I've told others here that when I read a poem that I wish I had written, it means that it's excellent; beyond excellent. Absolutely fantastic work, Samuel; this is going into my faves for sure! :)

Thanks so much for the compliment! I worry about the older vocabulary, but it feels right here.
