Destiny Rivera

Words of affirmation

I showed you a piece of my writing

A sliver of myself on a page

And you told me how amazing it was

And I felt myself preening

Like a scarlet macaw

Exploding into a symphony of pigments

With a hunger to begin another piece anew



Visions of The Future

If I try staring at the future for long


My eyes feel as though they are melting


To know what is coming next


like Icarus when he grazed the sun

The more I look the more it alludes me


my happiness burned by a gaseous orb of starlight


A schism between the three parts of me


Like Orpheus unable to prevent himself


My patience is hanging by a single thread

from stealing a marveling glance at Eurydice


If I do not unclench the thread will snap


Only to see her be whisked away by his very eyes


The future tantalizes me so deeply that I am

Unable to know where the soil begins

The fire starting in the present

And her ashes in the end
