Destiny in My Hands

Do you mock me, fair one?
Do you insult me whirlwind of worlds unknown?
Or do you try and tempt me?
Now in my hand you repose
Temperate lady destiny?

Destiny in my hands
Fair as a shell conch
In my hand, my heart my being
So fine, too thin to tread,
The line I can feel and not see
Yet too wide to leap,

Hence destiny must I embrace
A chaste peck on the cheek
Formal, stone cold, dead
Dare I enfold and entangle
In my arms, my life, my emotions?
My heart, my dreams and fantasy.
