Sonnet 21

Sonnet 21

Called in today to see if you were fine

But each time I was sent to voicemail

I stayed up worried all the way pass nine

You didn’t bother calling the phone or the cell

I dreamed of you and me together forever

But things took a turn for the worse

I told myself I won’t give up no, never,

You’ve been distant causing my heart to burse

Yet, I picture that terrible face with closed eyes

I never knew love could cause such pain

I sit alone each day and ask myself why

Then I remember this is my gain

I feel my love very slowly declining

Even with the sun and moon shining
