About the Poem

This is a sonnet about a relationship that was wrong from the start. Perhaps I didn't see how wrong it was until it was over because my vision was blurred with tears...

Sonnet Of Sorrow

Eternally, I thought, my eyes would shed
these tears; tears that burned their paths down my cheeks,
and drained me of such verve, I choked and could not speak
These tears were those of fear, of guilt, and of dread
You watched me in my suffering and in my pain,
and smiled your smug simper, baring your teeth,
swearing that you too hurt, only buried underneath
your poise; yet still my zeal continued to wane
for I began to doubt your feelings for me;
I felt your bitterness, your resentment, and all-above,
I resolved that these cold emotions did not entail the love
that before you declared with such vivacity;
So I broke from your hold, and I see, finally now you cry,
when you see at long last, my eyes are now dry
