Sonnet No. 1: I’m Still Stuck On You

image

I have seen your sunsets
I gazed upon your ochre skies
At each reminder my soul regrets
At each memory my mouth sighs

My heart yearns for the past
Days long gone in last year’s embrace
I fear my mind cannot outlast
This yearning to see your face

I imagine the day when we meet again
I invent scenes inside my head
Yet I know this just leads to pain
Of thoughts of a love now dead

I sometimes wish I never met you
A wish for rewritten histories
But then my skies would still be blue
Lacking a muse for my stories

My heart may have forgotten
Yet my mind is still beholden

  2. OMG. Are you (still) a young man? I happen to have the wisdom of the ages (or is it the aged, hahaha!). and have built a resilience to rejection, because i know that I am a good catch, and the other person is the loser.

    No one is indispensable.

  3. Inventing scenes inside my head that leads to unbearable pain is a habit I haven’t found a way of getting rid of.

    She’d probably say…

    But I still would choose to meet you
    In a thousand times, write our history
    I would brave the world to chase you
    See your smile, continue our story.
