The Incomplete Sonnet...

by Amreen   Jul 3, 2013

O my love,
where do you walk towards;
leaving our love sonnet
like an incomplete chapter?

Like words and rhyme
we begin to write a serenade,
hoping the world would remember
our love forever.

We blended in our thoughts and affection,
like the warmth of sunrise
and the calmness of sunset
to pen a beautiful story.

But I failed to realize that
your words fell short of life;
the page remained blank and...
how much could a rhyme help?

Now the sonnet lacks meaning,
it seems lifeless
written with scribbled words
yet ended with a rhyme.

*written for a club challenge.

    Very nice. I know you have read some of my poetry and can tell I like to rhyme a lot. Reading your poetry is a nice change of pace from the rhyming themes of mine. Nice job

    I'm usually pretty good at guessing who wrote what in challenges because everyone's style is so different, but I was wrong in this case! lol I truly love this, it's so unique... you really pulled it off nicely! :)

    This relationship started off well, you began penning your journey together, your sonnet... but only in the end for it to be incomplete due to him not doing his part in the relationship, leaving a blank page when it should have been filled with love.

    Beautiful piece, Amreen! I'm always a fan of your work. <3
