Love Poem: Our Fated Selves

Our Fated Selves

Folding in to convention
Sealed in creases of acceptance
Maligned and misled
By the false promises
Of a stolen heart 
We chase the white whale
Of validation
Into waters of denial…
  “Fury—the rallying cry
   of our vengeful spirit
   Hate—the jilted lover
   of our fated selves”

(Villanova Pennsylvania: February, 2016)
