Amity

out of this world

swan song

Every step
Draws me closer
To you.
The closer I get
The farther it seem.
The hollow deepens
You become a mirage
Varnishing scent
An apparition.
Let me hold you this last time.

  1. I’ll consider dropping the anchor
    Just this once
    So make it count.

  2. A dazzling mirage I’d say, as the name of a Nollywood Blockbuster Flick’s so-called! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Excellent use of imageries, and the urgent plea and vulnerability of the Narrator is truly endearing….adorable! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    I just pretty much wonder at the possibility of pulling off this feat…holding on to what seems to be there; but in actuality may not be there, which is what a mirage is! When in our wilderness, we see it from afar off! As we gain grounds and move towards it, it taunts and vanishes; thereby evading us! The good news though…..our minds are a powerhouse, wherein lies our imaginations! ‘Logic will get you from A to Z, imagination will get you everywhere’- Albert Einstein! Plus, all things are possible, to them who believe….its all ’bout attitude! ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Swan Song’s a stunning title! I say if the Ugly Duckling can be transformed to a Swan, then this Swan will get its wishes! Plus, its that time in season where magic happens and dreams come true! Shalom! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜„

    Love can make one do things one won’t do under normal circumstances.
    But then nothing about love is normal.
    Longing for who does not want us is part of love’s abnormality.
    Enchanting…

  5. “Don’t expect too much and you won’t be disappointed” might be a clichรฉ. If only our minds can make real those bits of our inevitable fantasies…. I wonder why it happens. Swan song is beautiful, I love it. Thumbs up Amity.

  6. Mirage…
    Hope…
    A pedestal where
    Broken hearts
    Are created.
