Hunger pains (Sonnet)

by Michael   May 30, 2019


You said what goes around will come around
I did believe this saying was not true.
But in the end, the truth is always found
and now I bear the scars of missing you
My just deserts are flavoured not of sweet
an aftertaste that lies within my heart.
A sour taste of words are left to eat
I should have heard and listened from the start.
I've come to learn the error of my ways
a clod was I that played a foolish game.
The dullard words are left for me to graze
my gut is wretched and can’t digest the pain.
I took a bite off more than I could chew
now ev'ry day I starve a void of you

    An emotional colorful write that lays bare the errors that brought this character to the loss of his love. What goes around generally does fine away to come back and bite. Milly x
