THE MELANCHOLY END
My love to him I gave, unrestricted,
And he discarded me as quickly as
The snake impales its prey. Extirpated,
permanently, is clarity from my eyes.
Each breath is soaked with regret, I’m drowning
where I wait. My sorrowful existence:
the fresh wound aching, lingering, burning.
As warmth leaves my soul, the weight of silence
eclipses all. Scanning the scarlet sky
this dusk, I picture his divine body.
Welcoming, compassionate; it’s a lie,
a temporary portrait of safety.
Agony smolders, merciless; alive
no more is my desire to survive.
- This is a sonnet that I wrote fall 2009. I'm not sure about the title (I kind of just made it up on a whim). I would love some feedback!
