Engulfed, a poem written by Rando Mithlo at Spillwords.com



written by: Rando Mithlo



I stopped in my tracks where It had struck
How our paths crossed in time by chance
From what dark recess I extract such
To explore a casual thought I’d saved
What joy comes sometimes blind I receive
Not knowingly next to me and always do I reach
To see her blearily in distance but know somehow
The soul in that gaze is a familiar one
To see this life again in altered paths
Like wolves at bay held my regrets
When ended unsettled this draw endured
A peripheral glow now fully engulfed
In modern surround her style unchanged
Her voice so some sedate stream insatiable
Pierce through what haze of youth obfuscate
I affix a filter to an undeniable spell
What wasn’t just perfect I’ll dress it enough
Into a seam torn time arms stretch through
Denied she fades reaching ever possess
That something to which I fail to placate
