Lesson Relearned – sonnet

Blue china broken on the floor
its’ tiny pieces scattered cost
Symbolic price for all love lost
as I watch you walk out the door
and leave behind a shattered heart
of broken dreams of what you did
allowed your mother’s heart be shredded
just take your things and quickly part.
And for once again I shall heal
replace old bandage which came loose
deceit and lies brought me to kneel
the heartache of tears runs profuse
Away you run, your deeds concealed
spin your tales of secret misuse.

    The ‘like’ is for your sonneteering skill rather than the story, which is awfully sad.

      Lessons relearned are sad. Hopes are dashed. Walls are built. Truth can be a messy ordeal. Thanks for hanging in there Viv.
