Fate, and the Fall

Do you believe in Fate? And if you do, ever known what happens when Fate toys with you...



She was his,

He had nothing to lose.
Fate decided to play a fall;
A plot- where he could not choose.

And then she came,
To fill the void in his life.
Life a whiff of fresh air,
Putting an end to his inner strife!

She was angelic,
Far too ethereal to be his mate.
Fate, but grimly smiled;
The fish had taken the bait.

Happy times, or so they seemed;
Her essence had him floored.
Little was he to know,
Fate would soon have him gored!

She was his anodyne,
In his sickness and pain.
She was his amulet,
That brought him only gain.

Hasty, his desires grew;
As he willed to own her.
Taking someone for granted-
Something that would haunt him forever.

And when she left,
Shattered- he remained.
Reality dawned on him,
He had lost what he had gained.

She was his;
For, that's what he had thought.
Fate had played its fall;
A plot- which he had miserably lost!

I like this...
I love poetry like this - dark, passionate and a little bit mysterious. You manage to take the plot of a novel and condense it into a poem. Great stuff!

Oooo, another superbly done one! I liked this one loads! Although at times the rhymes might seem a little forced, overall I thought it was excellent and I loved the way fate played around with him, ect. such an easy thing to happen in real life. Great job on this one! Keep writing!

I agree with mirth you showed a lot of strenth and courage in this poem and it is something to be admired.

This is quite an interesting piece. Fate certainly is a twisted character. Your rhyming is nice and fits with the way you're telling the story. It reminded me a lot of old greek tales. Nice work!
