Sonnet — Heartbreak

Tell me truthfully how it came about,

Explain to me where things went so astray,

That joyful certainty should turn to doubt,

Those bright flowers of love stained by decay.

My aching heart is full of unnamed fears,

Dreading to hear the unforgiving truth,

Assure me that all will not end in tears

That time itself will be unable to soothe.

Speak words to prove my disquiet baseless,

Merely unreal spectres sent to torment

By the demons that have sought to possess

My soul — anguish and heartbreak their intent.

Oh my soul’s dear twin, and my closest friend,

Say we will be one until life shall end.
