"True love doesn't have a happy ending, because true love never ends."

"Writing isn't that hard, you just sit at a typewriter and bleed." -Ernest Hemmingway

Fate, a cruel mistress of time,
The keeper of hearts, the teaser of faith,
Oh the monstrosity she creates.
False hope, what a joke,
Thinking only time will tell.
Lie in bed, wish on a star,
Hoping it will wish you well.
Instead it grasps your heart, slashes your hope,
Breaks you apart.
Get up and hold on,
Stay strong,
Cling to the faith, wish on that star,
Pray on every thought.
Defeat this cruel mistress,
The pessimism she creates.
The teaser, the keeper,
The one we call Fate.

The author's comments:
Fate is a cruel mistress, at least that's what I've found in my experiences. I don't think that I'm the only one.
