Sam's Somewhat Somber Short Sonnet (2)

Mon Nov 26, 2018

I’m just a boy. Swimming in the clouds

You’re just a girl. Prancing through the rays

Our love will never be something that they allowed

We must follow our destiny and simply obey


I long at night for your gentle touch

Making me sick to know you are so far away

My body is decaying,  and I can’t do much

Until I see you and know that you will stay


But the months go on and you don’t return

Was my love too much for you to handle

Did you go back home to your family and mourn

All the stories and lies are nothing but a scandal


If only you would listen to my side of the story

Then maybe my depression wouldn’t be mandatory
