Sonnet to a Dear and Discouraged Friend
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.
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?
