Hello, my dear readers. I think it’s about time I introduce you to some of my actual literature and creative work. This is a sonnet that I wrote last Friday (Dec. 9, 2016) due to a sudden burst of inspiration. Two weeks ago, I realized that I had been focusing a lot on my long-term writing projects, and hadn’t taken much time, if any, to flex my creative muscles via poems and artwork and such. So I asked a friend of mine what I should write a poem about, and she said “heartbreak”. So I put that in my mental queue of things that I needed to write. I only started writing it on Friday, because that was the day before my 18th birthday, and I wanted to do something memorable to commemorate those last moments. I was thinking hard about what I would do, and then it came to me that it’d be the perfect time to implement the idea. It was originally gonna be a set of 3 poems, but that fell through, since I started writing too late. Anyways, here it is; I really put a lot of thought and meaning into it, so I hope you guys like it.
That what I thought we had leaves me remiss
And my heart cleft into these jagged halves
Still left, right where it’s situated at.
A beautiful thing that we had, a tryst
That let us feel like troubles don’t exist;
I wish you’d granted me a caveat
But you had not the wherewithal for that.
You stole away as if we’d never kissed.
Perhaps you never thought it was real
Or that secrecy made it something bad
But I’d like to know if the love was true.
Yet many things I’d still rather feel
Than to bring upon you anything sad
For deep in me, there is still love for you.
