Today the battle really was too great
I died in grief’s great arms in my dark night
Upon my soul was sorrow’s deadly weight
I knew that I had given up the fight
I sank into oblivion in the dark
No one could reach me there, and nor I them
And in that vacuum knew the truth so stark,
That never would there be a how or when,
Alone in that great pit that took me in
And gave me comfort of the strangest kind
I knew that in this life I’d never win,
True peace and rest I’d not in this world find,
So now my weary body do I hold
Waiting for the land that offers true gold

  1. A PERFECT SONNET! Never strayed from topic, nor from meter ~ not even one little strained rhyme! Totally emotionally intense despite the demanding intricacy of the form. This is so difficult to do! So rare! 👏👏👏👏👏
