Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life!

You stand as ever
behind the latticed partition
half hidden from my view;
only your glinting eyes
and enigmatic smile
are allowed to filter through the net
like beams of sunlight entering
a dreary dismal dungeon.

Fate, distance and people
conspire in sadistic delight
to torment my restless imagination
into fevered frenzy.
Will i ever behold the whole
of your glorious frame
in my hungry gaze?


  1. What a delightful piece of poetry Maddie! I love the coyness of this piece, the questioning innocence. Well done on creating a beautiful composition!

  2. You can feel the build of anticipation from this, very good thanks for sharing.

  3. Wow, kiddo! Some fire in this poem! Well done.
