Sonnet to a Dear and Discouraged Friend

slapdashmonuments

Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?


There’s nobody who knows as well as I

How stealthily dark thoughts will bruit and shove

The rational, the calmer ones; they lie

And whisper: “You’re not worthy of their love!”

.

And oh my dear, I know that this is true,

So venomous to both of us. You’re THE

Good Person, Lovely One. I’ve faith in you;

And if it’s in my pow’r, I’ll help you see

.

How thoroughly you’re loved. So many say

They love you (as do I). If you but knew,

Persuaded of your worth, the unique way

You’ve made all our lives better, I think you

.

Might realize what we all know: You are

As bright and lovely as the Evening Star.
